Environments for Humans is bringing us the 2016 Accessibility Summit again this year and as usual, they've packed it full of great presentations by a great group of accessibility experts. The event happens on September 6th and 7th, from 9:00 to 4:00. This year, the meeting space and refreshments (including a lunch meal the first day) are provided by Technology Services, Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES), the College of Applied Health Sciences (AHS), Administrative Information Technology Services (AITS), and the Illinois Library.
The first group of students have successfully graduated from the inaugural IADP program! Sponsored by the College of Applied Health Sciences, this course is comprised of three 8-week modules that provide a professional certification upon successful completion.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is collecting comments on the importance of web accessibility for people across the country who have disabilities. They are focusing on state and local government websites that cover things like voting, emergency preparedness, public schools and other government services.
