Web Accessibility Specialists seem to be the latest technology certification that is rapidly growing as more and more companies are receiving demand letter regarding their inaccessible websites. There is an increasing need for software engineers, designers, and QA engineers to have more of an accessibility background. Who has taken the WAS certification exam? I find it as a valuable breadth of knowledge to have as it is a great reminder of why we are required to make website accessible. 

Developing software with the accessible user in mind is more than adding a text reader!  Does anyone have other recommendations for educating the technology professionals about developing and delivering software that is fully inclusive of ALL people, rather than fixing the minimum legal requirement?

  1. 3 year old courses from Pluralsight?   https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/web-accessibility-meeting-guidelines
  2. WebAIM (albeit that's not really a certification)
  3. Code specific documentation
    1. React Accessibility
    2. Angular Accessibility

Definitely not very structured or academic.  It's like being a mechanic and stumbling your way through fixing all different types of cars.

Sounds like Pluralsight needs some updated content on a11y. Is anyone out there working on some updated web accessibility courses on Pluralsight? What are some specific topics you all would like to see addressed in courses?
