IDPF Webinar: IBM BlueMix Accessibility Checker


When and where

Date and time




On December 16th at 19 UTC, Thomas Brunet and Rich Schwerdtfeger from IBM will join an IDPF webinar to give a live demonstration of the newly released IBM accessibility checking tools, followed by Q&A. The webinar is free for IDPF members.

Earlier this year, IBM announced their first set of enterprise accessibility tools on IBM Bluemix: Digital Content Checker and Automated Accessibility Tester. The new services provide an easy and affordable way to help enterprises produce accessible content and applications, and integrate accessibility directly into the programming code. By creating better visibility and integration of accessibility best practices across the enterprise, organizations can now be more proactive in identifying and addressing accessibility related issues.

The Digital Content Checker can test HTML as well as EPUB documents for accessibility. Read more in the IBM blog post Placing Accessibility at the Forefront of Design and DevOps.
