The web’s importance in our daily lives continues to grow. The internet is the new public square. It is a place where ideas, information, education, entertainment, and commerce are taking place. For accessibility to become embedded in our everyday thinking and world, we all need to realize the role we all can play in accessibility. We need to incorporate accessibility into our work and considerations. This workshop will go over why accessibility matters, how to create accessible digital content by explaining accessibility best practices and how to evaluate your digital content. For professors I will also touch on digital accessibility projects you can incorporate into your various courses.
Equipment: People can bring a laptop if they wish to follow along and experiment with some evaluation tools.
