Recorded: December 8, 2015 – At one time, we relied on the talents of one person, or a small team of people, who served as “webmasters” – folks who were the “gatekeepers” of all information intended for display on a website. Today, everyone is a “content creator” and as such we all need to be aware that digital content intended for the public must be fully accessible to everyone.
In this 90-minute webinar, the issues and methods related to the creation of accessible digital documents were discussed. Procedures for assessing content for accessibility and team work-flows that can ensure your digital content successfully meets accessibility standards are examined.
- Understanding of the needs of people with disabilities and the Assistive Technologies used.
- What are digital documents & how to make them accessible to all.
- Tools for assessing and work flows that increase success.
- Where to find tons of free resources.
