Event description
California was the first state to require publishers to provide files to colleges to benefit students with disabilities.

About this Event

Students with disabilities must be able to obtain textbooks and other educational materials in formats that are accessible to them.

In 1999, the California Assembly passed AB422, a bill requiring publishers to provide electronic files to colleges to help create accessible materials. AB422 was instrumental in moving publishers towards greater accessibility.

This event celebrates progress in accessibility since 1999, while discussing new and continuing challenges for students with disabilities.

Speakers Include:

  • Sheri Byrne-Haber, Accessibility Evangelist
  • Joshua Hori, Disability Service Provider
  • Georgina Kleege, Author and Professor
  • Robert Martinengo, CAILA Founder

Light refreshments will be available.

Sign language interpreting by A Show of Hands.

This is a free event open to the public.

Pre-registration is requested.
