Content for Everyone: Making Information and Multimedia Accessible

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Tuesday 7th May, 2013

8:30am to 9:30am (EST)

Information is critical, whether reading an article or using an application. And content authors are critical to accessibility. From informative headings to links that make sense to meaningful alternatives for images or multimedia, making content understandable and perceivable is the front line of accessibility. If the audience can’t read and understand the information, then it might as well not be there. Come learn how to make sure that your documents, websites, help or application content is accessible for everyone.
