Web Accessibility Interest Group

Maryland Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped announces the commencement of a new interest group. The purpose of the group is to foster dialogue about web accessibility.

The plan is for the group to meet monthly at the library on the second Saturday from noon until 2 p.m. The first meeting will be held April 9. The library is located at 415 Park Ave., Baltimore, MD 21201. The main number is 410-230-2424.

The group will be facilitated by Karl Groves, Director, Training of Deque Systems, Inc. and  welcomes web developers of all levels. There will be people attending who are versed in this technology and people who want to learn how to code websites for optimum accessibility. The first two monthly topics will be “Tools and processes for assessing accessibility” and “Research findings in the web accessibility area."

Future meetings will seek speakers and look to the group itself for presenters.

Anyone interested in this group may contact Mollyne Honor at 410-230-2456 or mrhonor@lbph.lib.md.us.
