Course Description:

The training will touch briefly on the legal justification for web accessibility. Having a good understanding of the legal framework for accessibility because the ADA only contributes a small portion of the legal justification for web accessibility. Further, this session will give a very objective view of where the world— and hence our legal mandates— are heading based on clear demographic data. This session will also demonstrate why accessible web design is important with a screen reader demonstration. We have found that this helps developers understand how their coding choices has a real impact on their end-users with disabilities. The bulk of the training will focus, however, on wireframe designs for accessibility. Specifically, it will focus on what to look for in the design stage when working with end-customers to help them understand and “see” how their designs will incorporate accessibility. Having properly designed wireframes will make it much easier to build accessible website later— and avoid embarrassing and costly redesigns with customers later. We envision this being a very interactive training session in which students can ask complex questions about any of these topics.
