Description: Can people with disabilities and age related limitations access and use your web site? What does the law say? What's the difference between accessibility and usability? What are common barriers for people who use assistive technology to read a web site? How can these barriers be prevented and addressed? This is an introductory training, useful to anyone designing or updating web sites. We'll demonstrate how assistive technology is used to access the internet. This training is interactive and participants will have hands-on experience using accessibility tools. Space is limited to no more than 30.
