You don't have to be an accessibility expert to make your sites accessible. This course will help you attain the knowledge and skills to meet web accessibility guidelines and make your sites accessible to all users.
If you are a web/front-end developer, the work you produce must be accessible to all users. In this course, Meeting Web Accessibility Guidelines (Section 508/ WCAG 2.1), you will get hands-on, practical code examples that you can start using today towards your goal of meeting official accessibility guidelines. First, you will learn the differences between Section 508 and WCAG 2.1, helping you to decide which guideline to use. Next, you'll dive into real-world, reusable code patterns/techniques and matching them to relevant guidelines. After finishing this course, not only will you be equipped to acquire government/education-related contracts, but you'll be able to make sites that meet established accessibility conformance guidelines and are more usable for everyone.
