Accessibility is about making the Web more usable to more people in more situations. It is vital that the Web is accessible to people with disabilities and seniors, given its increasingly key role in education, employment, government, commerce, health care, recreation, and more. The first step for successful accessibility is understanding the basic issues.
This seminar introduces you to real-world user experiences of people with different disabilities using the Web. You'll see accessibility barriers common in many websites, and usability issues for seniors with diminishing abilities due to aging. We'll demo assistive technologies - such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, and alternative input devices - to show what works, what doesn't and how to fix it.
For web developers, designers, project managers, usability specialists, and testers we'll cover:
- The key things you need to do to make your website more accessible, focusing on the easy things first
- The "why" behind accessibility standards and guidelines, to help you implement them more easily
- Hands-on screening techniques that anyone can use in designing and evaluating websites to be accessible
For people with disabilities and seniors we'll cover:
- Adaptive strategies for using the Web with and without assistive technologies
- How to communicate fixes for common accessibility barriers that you encounter on websites
- Tips and tricks to help you use the Web more effectively
Come be a part of this unique opportunity for web developers and people with disabilities to learn together how to make the Web better for all.
