CMPT 480/840 Accessible Computing

Web site for 2019

This course will investigate the analysis and design of accessibility issues and features related to computing applications. While the focus is on computing accessibility, this course also provides a comprehensive background to accessibility that can also be applied within other domains.

This course material has been significantly revised to make use of information in the new ISO/IEC Guide 71:2014 on Accessibility, especially the 11 accessibility goals (principles) that it discusses.
