Web Accessibility: Making Websites Usable for Everyone

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Web Accessibility is for everyone – it means making Websites flexible enough to meet a broad range of preferences, needs, and situations. This includes not only individuals with visual, auditory or physical disabilities but anyone with limited Internet connectivity, temporary disabilities (e.g. a broken arm), or changing abilities due to aging.

This session will cover Web Accessibility standards, development, tools, and techniques, including:

  • Specific HTML, CSS and JavaScript techniques for Web Accessibility 
  • WCAG 2.0 AA - these standards will be covered in depth including code samples, compliance checklists and legal implications of non-compliance. 
  • The four main areas of accessibility: Visual, Audio, Physical and Cognitive 
  • The primary tools for testing Web Accessibility: browser plugins, compliance tools, and the NVDA Screen Reader 
  • A survey of resources and certification organizations for ensuring compliance
