January 28
Matrix Resources


Joel Crawford-Smith from Duke Web Services will be presenting ‘Accessibility Fundamentals, Testing and Good Karma’

The Web is fundamentally designed to work for all people, whatever their hardware, software, language, culture, location, or physical or mental ability. When the Web meets this goal, it is accessible to people with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability.” ~ W3C

The goal of this session is to explain the fundamentals of web accessibility, 508 compliance, and WCAG compliance.  This session will share easy changes you can make today to improve a site’s level of accessibility, as well as requests you can make from your developers to improve compliance.  Participants will be armed with a list of go-to resources for testing and improving their site or web application.
