BOF: Accessibility in Apereo. Where are we at and where do we want to be?

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

  • Gonzalo Silverio

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

10:00am to 10:45am (PST)

This is a Birds of a Feather (BOF). The purpose is to gather together across the Apereo panoply of activities all that are interested in accessibility for a frank exchange on the subject as it affects our "products". Hope to discuss what challenges we face now, where do we want to see our offerings in terms of a11y in the future and what strategies can we pursue together towards those goals.

Some other more specific possibilities to discuss are:

1. pooling of resources (a11y education, development, testing, user assistance) across Apereo
2. pursuing a11y certification from some organization

But this is a BOF - so all subjects are open to discussion.
