Institute, AIR-Austin 2003 Chairman Bill Morrow, CEO of Grande
Communications, Knowbility's Executive Director, Sharron Rush plus

AIR-Austin is an accessible web design competition that matches teams of
professional web designers and developers with area non-profit 
organizations
in need of web sites.  The developers receive training in accessible web
development techniques and the non-profit organizations receive
professionally designed accessible web sites.

There will be demonstrations of assistive technologies, as well as
convergent technologies that benefit from the same design techniques that
make web sites accessible to screen readers and other assistive
technologies.

The press conference is open to the public and everyone is welcome to
attend.  There is free parking available in the visitors parking garage 
for
the first hour.
