developers receive training in accessible web development techniques and the
non-profit organizations receive professionally designed 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
