Webinar Series: Accessibility Online
from the U.S. Access Board and the Great Lakes ADA Center

Description:

Access to websites is essential in today’s digital environment for obtaining information, downloading data, sharing media, purchasing goods and services, and making other transactions. Many websites, however, remain off-limits to people with disabilities, particularly those with sensory impairments, because they are not structured and coded properly for accessibility. It is important that websites support assistive technologies used by people with disabilities to surf the web, such as screen-reading and magnification software.

This introductory webinar will cover online barriers to accessibility and explain how to check that web content is accessible to all visitors. The presenters will review key resources that businesses and other entities operating websites can follow, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines issued by the World Wide Web Consortium. They will also explain how to identify and correct assess issues on a site and share best practice recommendations. Attendees can pose questions in advance or during the live webinar. This session is intended for both a general audience as well as website designers and content managers who are experienced, but new to accessibility. A more advanced session on website accessibility in the federal sector will take place September 24 as part of the Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series (www.adaconferences.org/CIOC)
