April 14, 2020: The Art of Accessibility Evaluation

Coffee Provided


This month Tim Offenstein will answer several questions about accessibility evaluation. How do we make sure our IT products are usable and functional for disabled audiences? Someone has to evaluate the product, ideally at an early stage of the development lifecycle, in order to ensure we're not creating obstacles in what we produce and purchase. How is this done? What process is used to create an Accessibility Report so that we can be reasonably certain our products are inclusive for all audiences? This presentation will take you through the steps commonly used to determine how functionally accessible a given product can be. We'll try out some automated checkers and assistive technology to see what they can tell us. The presentation may even help you catch some issues on your next project!

We’re always looking for websites and topics to discuss! Email us any time and we’ll add your site/topic to the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
