Creating digital properties that are accessible to individuals with disabilities and users of assistive technologies (AT) can seem like an overwhelming task. This 60 minute presentation will demystify the process and provide simple ways that designer and developers can greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of digital properties. Participants will see a demonstration of screenreader AT and experience firsthand the difference between an accessible and inaccessible website. The presentation will conclude with a review of the “Accessibility Top 10”, easy steps to incorporate accessibility into the digital design and development process.
