Webinar Series: Accessible Technology
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network

Description:

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are technical standards designed to make web content more accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities. This session will discuss:

  • How the standards were developed and organized based upon the principles of accessible design (POUR)
  • The relationship between Section 508 and WCAG V2.1 Level AA
  • Why the accessibility guidelines are organized into levels and how that is important in developing/assessing your webpages.
  • Most common level A accessibility errors.

This session will use lots of examples to show what accessible design looks like to the end user as well as the user experience when web page elements are not accessible. The session will not go into technical details and will not require knowledge of coding or technical language.
