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.
