This course identifies how to make websites accessible based on the latest web accessibility initiative (WAI) and the web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) standards.  Students will learn how to review websites for accessibility based on real-world scenarios whereby users are unable to effectively access content on a website, due to a visual, audible, or physical disability. Students will gain an understanding and practical hands-on experience of how to use various assistive technologies and ensure website accessibility with such impairments and use of corresponding devices.  Students will be able to identify accessibility flaws in existing websites and apply the needed modifications using the techniques taught in this course.  Search engine optimization (SEO), website analytics, and data reporting will be discussed and evaluated pre- and post-accessibility modifications.
