Beginning on Oct. 22, 2013, the Inclusive Design Research Centre (IDRC) at OCAD University will be offering a free weekly clinic to help website owners and developers check on the accessibility of their website. The clinics will provide website owners with an opportunity to sit down with an expert accessibility designer and have their Web site’s accessibility reviewed, and learn how to spot and address accessibility issues themselves.
