As a part of our party, we will be hosting accessible karaoke from 8:00-10:00PM! For those who are new to CSUN, accessible karaoke is karaoke with sign language interpreters. We have hired interpreters who specialize in music interpretation and they’ll sing along to whatever you choose to perform. If you would like to perform, please sign-up in advance so our all-star team of signers can practice beforehand. We will also be using a karaoke machine this year, so please submit your song selection in advance so we can confirm that your selection is available. You don’t want to miss it!

Will There Be Accessibility Accommodations?
We will provide captioning for the opening and closing of the hackathon. The event will mostly consist of people working independently and in small groups on various projects, so it won’t be possible to caption absolutely everything said at the event.

Deque University Scholarships
Back in 2016, we decided to offer our Deque University online, self-paced courses to people with disabilities for free. There aren’t enough digital accessibility experts in the world, and people with disabilities have an understanding of how accessibility barriers can impact lives that people without disabilities often struggle to understand.
If you have a disability, and you’re interested in becoming an accessibility expert, Deque University is a great place to start. The application and additional information is available at dequeuniversity.com/scholarships. The application is very simple; and after submission and approval, you will have access to Deque University’s online curriculum for one year.
At Deque Systems, we provide software, services, and training that empower companies and organizations to ensure that their websites, mobile apps, and digital content are usable by people with disabilities. Our clients include leading Fortune 500 companies in industries such as banking, healthcare, e-commerce, travel, hospitality, colleges and universities, and federal and state government agencies.
Our team of technology professionals, accessibility champions, and subject matter experts are trailblazers in the field of accessibility. They can guide you through best practices in a highly subjective area, saving you time and money.
