Recently there has been a greater awareness of the need for websites to be designed to be more easily used by people with disabilities. A series of standards (WCAG) has been developed to guide the design of websites that could be considered to be “ADA compliant”. (ADA = Americans with Disabilities Act) While the current enforcement focus is on government and education websites, many organizations have an interest in designing their websites to be more easily accessed by all users. During this session we will NOT actually be creating websites, but rather examining what features and techniques are currently considered to make a website (or document) “accessible” to all. Your instructor will share her recent experience in going through this process. Gold Star Fee: $22.00.
