Description

Learning Objectives

For staff members who have a basic grasp of the laws and guidelines pertaining to accessibility, and who may have experience, or done research, regarding designing for the needs of users living with disabilities, this course will move them forward in their learning process with more specific technical guidance.

We begin with cameos of users who live with the four disability classifications recognized by the US Department of Human Services. Our Accessibility Specialists then guide your staff, step-by-step, through the design requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, as they apply to people living with disabilities. (For clients using WeCo’s Access Approved testing service, our standards are also included.)

Your staff will be able to ask questions along the way and receive answers from people who live with, and understand the develop needs of others who live with disabilities, making this an extremely powerful training.

Technical Level Notation

This course discusses Section 508 and WCAG criteria in depth and provides specific technique and code suggestions for accessible development. This course is most useful for web and software development staff who will be creating/making changes to your electronic venues.
