      Knowbility Extends Early Deadline Discounts for The John Slatin
      Access U Training Institute, Austin, TX - May 11-12, 2009

        Two days of classes in accessible information technology to help
        meet state and federal accessibility requirements.

In response to current economic conditions, the deadline for *Early Bird 
discount registration rates for the John Slatin Access U training have 
been extended indefinitely*. The announcement was made today by the 
sponsoring organization, Knowbility, Inc.

*WHAT*: Offered since 2003, Access U provides one to three days of 
comprehensive web and IT accessibility classes led by world renowned 
accessibility and policy experts and administrators. The Institute 
promotes a better understanding of both the need and the techniques for 
inclusive IT design, with a focus on the most recent changes in federal 
and global standards for Web Accessibility. Register now: 

*WHEN*: The John Slatin Access U will be held at St. Edward's University 
in Austin, Texas on
Monday, May 11, and Tuesday, May 12, 2009, with Post-Conference sessions 
on Wednesday, May 13.

*May 11th and 12th - Classes in four professional tracks*: Technical, 
Content, Administrative, Usability New this year! -- Usability 
certificate program is available.

*May 13th -- Intensive Courses: Molly Holzschlag and Derek Featherstone 
in small venue*.

*3-Day Design Intensive -- May 11 -- 13, 2009* Molly Holzschlag, Web 
standards advocate, instructor and author, offers three days of advanced 
techniques in HTML/XHTML and CSS for accessibility, SEO, and superior 
web site performance.

*Post Conference All-Day Sessions -- Wednesday, May 13, 2009* Derek 
Featherstone: Breaking New Ground: Designing for Accessibility in 
Emerging Technologies. Molly Holzschlag: CSS Floats, Positioning and 
layout, best practices, cross--browser and interoperable design 
solutions, and a look at some of CSS3's juicy features.

*WHY*: Web accessibility is important...and it's required by law. 
Websites can be designed for accessibility or they can shut people out. 
Four million Texans are among the more than 54 million people in the 
U.S. who live with disabilities of all sorts, many of whom cannot fully 
benefit from the Internet and the World Wide Web because too many Web 
sites are designed with no thought of accessibility. Accessibility is 
not only the right thing to do, but now there are federal, state and 
local mandates requiring accessibility, and Access U is here to help IT 
professionals and administrators meet those requirements.

*WHO*: Access U sponsors and partners include St. Edward's University, 
Adobe, Ability Awareness and the Usability Professionals Association. 
Knowbility, Inc. is the non-profit organization that produces Access U 
and many other accessibility training programs.
