Introduction to Website Accessibility

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Event Details

Are you concerned that your library's website isn't meeting accessibility standards? If not, you should be--lawsuits concerning website accessibility failures are increasing, and libraries do not have immunity.

In this one-hour webinar, you'll gain an understanding of which guidelines are used to measure website accessibility in the United States, and how to begin to evaluate your own library's site for potential issues. We'll also discuss some common pitfalls and things to avoid. Topics for this webinar include:

  • What accessibility means in a web context, and how it differs from web usability
  • Legal issues surrounding web accessibility and how these can affect libraries;
  • National and international standards commonly used for accessibility evaluations, and which to use, when
  • An introduction to automated validators and what they can and cannot do;
  • Actual code examples for both good and bad implementations of some common HTML elements
