Webinar Series: Section 508 Best Practices
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network


The presenters will provide an overview of the updated Department of Homeland Security Trusted Tester Version 5, associated trainings with trusted tester, and the trusted tester certification process.

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Accessible Systems and Technology, in coordination with other government agencies, have updated the Trusted Tester Training series and certification exam to align with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and the Revised Section 508 Standards. The shared testing methodology results in improved outcomes, including decreased delivery time for accessible web and software, and increased ability to compare the accessibility of multiple products while reducing redundant evaluation efforts. The new training improves consistency of training materials, supports a wider range of student test environments, and streamlines the certification exam while maintaining the integrity of the exam itself.

In addition, Trusted Tester V 5.0 also improves the overall format, flow, and construction of the process and its test conditions to improve readability, coherence, and the overall effectiveness of the test process.

Presenters will discuss the new testing tool, the Accessible Name and Description Inspector (ANDI), and how it is designed specifically to facilitate code inspection-based testing. ANDI’s improvements in facilitating code-based inspection improves test efficiency while also simplifying test procedures.

The presentation will provide information on what is covered in the fully revised Trusted Tester training and describe the supporting resources and reporting tools that are available for use for Trusted Testers.

The presenters will respond to questions from the audience. Speakers: Cynthia Clinton-Brown, Executive Director, DHS, OCIO, Office of Accessible Systems & Technology (OAST) and Katherine Eng, ICT Accessibility Specialist, US Access Board.
