Sharon, Ellen,

My apologies for not sending this out sooner - the notice below may be of interest to some of the members:

If you are interested in making documents, websites, and application accessible to blind users, but don't have a lot of experience, the National Federation of the Blind has your back. If you live near Baltimore and want to find out more about accessibility, please consider joining us for one of our free, two-hour accessibility boutiques. We will be conducting these throughout the year. Here are our topics for May:

HTML with Accessibility in Mind: May 12, 8:00-10:00 a.m.
HTML provides the building blocks of accessible web design. Learn about how you can make different elements of a web page work for all your users with simple techniques. We will cover creating proper heading structure, forms, labeled images, CSS, link structure, and other topics.

Accessible PDF Documents: May 23, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Whether you are creating a PDF document or making an existing document usable, there are steps that will help you in the process. This two-hour boutique will cover some of the pitfalls and strategies that can make a cumbersome process less so.

If you are interested in attending either or both of these boutiques, RSVP to cvangerven at nfb.org<mailto:cvangerven at nfb.org>; space is limited. The National Federation of the Blind is located at 200 East Wells Street, at Jernigan Place, Baltimore, MD 21230.
