LOVED watching the presentation of the users navigate through the SeniorTix website then getting into the designing. I learned a lot about accessibility within a short time and got great hands-on experience.

I liked that the workshop didn't overload us with information about accessibility, but instead gave great in-depth information about what we would be focusing on in the hands-on portions.
