TechAccessOK logo

TechAccessOK is Oklahoma’s premier conference that focuses on accessibility in technology and the web. The conference will take place at the Reed Conference Center in Midwest City, Oklahoma, just minutes away from Will Rogers World Airport.

Join experts in accessibility from Oklahoma, the southwest region and nationally. Our first conference last year brought together professionals, corporations, service organizations, and key thought leaders to learn about the tools, practices and innovations that contribute to accessibility for all.
