AUSTIN, Texas, April 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology is constantly changing, but the need for support has not. The challenges to technology access related to disability still exist, and it's important to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion in digital spaces. The John Slatin AccessU hybrid conference, taking place May 9-12, 2023, in Austin, Texas, and online, is an opportunity to learn from disability experts, connect with like-minded professionals, and expand your knowledge of assistive technology and digital accessibility. Accessibility refers to the ease of use of digital products for people with disabilities who may use assistive technologies or adaptive strategies as they browse the web.

Every keynote at the John Slatin AccessU conference is given by a disabled person, offering unique insights into the importance of disability inclusion and leadership in this field. The event also addresses the digital divide and digital equity, emphasizing the need for individuals with disabilities to participate in the conversation. With more than 90% of websites not meeting even minimum standards for accessibility, the AccessU training conference offers an approach to integrating accessible technology design into product development to address the root causes of digital discrimination.
