About this Event:
Designing and Developing a Website with Accessibility in Mind
One aspect of the user experience that is essential to the success of today’s websites is accessibility. Designers and developers are creating sites that are visually compelling, technically innovating and – in many cases ADA compliant. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore the issues for consideration when it comes to website accessibility, including:
- What is ADA compliance and why should we care?
- How to assess your current site’s level of compliance and establish goals for compliance.
- Design tips and strategies to maximize ADA compliance.
- Development tips and strategies to maximize ADA compliance.
- What’s next? Ongoing monitoring and updates to ensure ADA compliance and how to stay on top of trends.
Whether you are managing your own website, or you are working with a developer, this session will bring you up to speed on what it takes to work toward greater accessibility for your website visitors.
