Universal Design for Web Accessibility

When negotiating the web, "I can’t" is a fairly common expression: I can’t submit my application. I can’t place my order. I can’t read the text. I can’t find the information. For people who have disabilities, the "can’t" and "can" of the web is significant. The opportunities are great. Without thoughtful design, so are the barriers.


We’ll discuss elements of the built environment that provoke "I can’t" moments, as well as design elements and principles that minimize barriers, including:

  • Principles of Universal Design
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0)
  • General design principles that apply to web accessibility


You will develop an appreciation for the enabling role of design, and leave with a framework for making design decisions that minimize barriers on your websites and web applications.
