Upcoming Webinars: Content Accessibility

I’ll be presenting a series of three webinars on accessibility. The webinars, hosted by Adobe, cover:

Part 1: Making Sense of Accessibility (June 19)

“But we don’t have any disabled users.” As with any discipline, making your content accessible makes it better for all your users, not just those with disabilities. The first part of this three-part series covers:

  • Myths
  • Web standards
  • Types of disabilities
  • Legal issues
  • Existing solutions
  • Possible future solutions

Part 2: Creating an Accessible Layout (July 17)

What can you do to make your content appear more accessibly? During the second part of this three-part series, you’ll learn tips to make your documents (printed or online) more accessible to more users. This session will cover:

  • Document structure and layout
  • Colors
  • Fonts
  • Padding, margin, and line-height
  • Borders and underlines
  • Custom Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

Part 3: Developing Accessible Content (July 31)

You’ve learned why your content should be accessible and things you can do to make it appear more accessibly. In the last part of this three-part series, you’ll learn ways that you can create more accessible content and why they matter:

  • Grammar
  • Paragraph and sentence length
  • Alternative and title text
  • Link text
  • Data tables
  • Images and videos
  • Labels
