Twin Redheaded Stepchildren of a Different Mother: The Usability of Accessibility

A session at HighEdWeb 2011

Monday 24th October, 2011

4:45pm to 5:30pm (CST)

Web accessibility as a discipline is extremely varied and potentially complicated. The issues can take time to learn, but are not just important for fulfilling the legal requirements for disabled users but also for enhancing usability and user experience of your site for all visitors. We'll look at common development traps, form techniques, video, and more to help you create a core foundation for producing accessible content for your university sites.
