The Calendar of Upcoming Courses is formatted as a table, which is color-coded, but read by the screen reader. Tabbing through the screen will take you to a legend for the colors before you enter the table.

  • “Sea green” means that you are booked into the course for that date.
  • “Gray 25%” means that a course is available that day.

While in a cell with either color, use the enter key to go to that course’s detail to learn more and book the course. (Alternatively, use the spacebar to select the cell, then the “Go to Course Details” button.)
