Digital Accessibility removes barriers to allow people with disabilities to interact with documents, websites, and other information technology. While there are many tools to enable people with blindness, low vision, or learning disabilities to access and read documents, websites, and other sources of information, the content needs to be properly prepared. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 calls on Federal Agencies to make technology accessible. But, it’s also good business for all organizations. As much as 10% of the population has some level of visual difficulties.
This webinar will discuss concepts such as reading order, alternative texts, color, and other often simple adjustments that make a website digitally accessible to a population that otherwise would have difficulties.
