AUCD Hosts Webinar on Web Accessibility

Web Accessibility: What it is and Why it is Important to Your UCEDD

Thursday, May 1, 2014, 3:00PM – 4:00PM ET
Effective use of the Worldwide Web has become essential to a UCEDD’s ability to broadly and successfully disseminate information and resources. One often overlooked facet of web design is the optimized accessibility of content and site navigation for all users, including those who rely on assistive technology.

Todd Weissenberger, University of Iowa Web Accessibility Coordinator, and Mike Hoenig, a program coordinator at the Center for Disabilities and Development – Iowa UCEDD and an end user of assistive technology, will define Web accessibility from the legal and end user perspective, describe factors which lead to access barriers, define Web accessibility principles, outline the many reasons for incorporating accessibility into your Web design, and share pertinent resources. Ample time will be set aside to address your questions and concerns. Learn more about this Webinar
