How to Check A Website for Accessibility

Program Description

Website - construction sceneRecorded: October 29, 2018 – Anyone who owns, or administers a successful website knows they need to be vigilant in keeping their content up-to-date and meaningful. But it is equally important to ensure your website is accessible to all users, including people with disabilities who use assistive technology (AT). In this presentation we discuss and demonstrate methods and tools for conducting a quick accessibility review of a website’s structure, as well as the digital content. Strategies to prevent problems from occurring, and how fix minor problems when they do occur, will be shared.

Apologies: The recorded session below was the first one using the new Zoom webinar platform and Kaltura streaming service. It is a long sad story, but the “good” captioning did not get transferred, so the quality of the closed captioning for this version is not very good. We will do better next time as we learn this new system.
