July 25 - IT Accessibility Workshop

The IT Accessibility Workshop will include topics focusing on website and IT accessibility, including:

Access vs. Accommodations
Discussion will focus on the role of Section 504 and Section 508 as it pertains to access for students with disabilities and how both can impact your website and information technology environment.

What are the Section 508 Standards & WCAG 2.0, Level AA criteria?
Website lawsuits have emphasized WCAG 2.0, Level AA over the past few years as the expected level for accessibility. However, the Section 508 Standards were updated in January and now include parts of WCAG 2.0, Level AA. Find out what this means for your institution.

Including Accessibility as Part of Procurement
A critical step towards improving the accessibility of campus-wide information technology resources is to ensure that what you are purchasing meets accessibility standards. Come learn how colleges can use different strategies to incorporate an accessibility checkpoint into the procurement process.

Tools and Techniques for Evaluating Websites for Accessibility
Whether using manual or automated accessibility tests, a variety of tools and techniques exist to evaluate and assess your website's level of accessibility. We will identify the more common accessibility evaluation tools and the techniques to consider when reviewing the accessibility of your website.

Strategies for PDF Document Accessibility
Creating accessible PDF documents can be challenging even with robust training programs. Colleges should consider a multi-faceted approach to supporting the creation and delivery of accessible PDF documents across the institution.
