Accessibility Demystified: Web Accessibility Compliance and Tools to Help Meet the Requirements
Having worked for years with higher education organizations to meet WAI/WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards, Penny will educate attendees on web accessibility compliance, standards for higher education, and why web accessibility is everyone’s business. She will discuss the requirements for accessibility and the tools, many of which are free, that are available to help.
She will also give recommendations to help organizations get buy-in from their webmasters, marketing teams, and content contributors in order to integrate accessibility considerations into their day-to-day activities campus-wide.
She will provide a slide deck for the first part of the presentation, in which she will present the information about accessibility requirements. In the second part of the presentation, she will demonstrate online tools that organizations can use to audit their websites. She will close the presentation by providing electronic resources, such as an accessibility checklist, and opening it up for questions and discussion.
