Introduction to Digital Accessibility!

Standards and Best Practices

Digital accessibility should be at the forefront of all our digital content creation. However, it can be difficult to understand, decipher, and put into practice in a real and meaningful way. This webinar will explain the guiding principles of digital accessibility by learning and breaking down the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, the federal standard for digital accessibility. Please note: this webinar is focused on the universal principles of digital accessibility, it is not geared towards website development.

Accessible Documents and You!

Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat have long been used as standard formats for distributing documents.

In this webinar, you'll learn the skills needed to make sure that your documents are accessible and ADA compliant.

Broken... Please fix?!
May 16, 2019

"I did exactly what you told me to and I have multiple accessibility errors!? WHY?!" In this webinar we will discuss what to do when you have a list of errors from Microsoft's accessibility checker and your full accessibility report from Adobe Acrobat looks like a graduate thesis. This webinar walks through various types of errors, the remediation of those errors, and what you can do to make sure you are generating the most accessible content possible, regardless of the platform.
