Digital Accessibility: Introductions to Evaluating Resources
Nancy Egan, Adina Mullikan
This presentation will provide an introduction to evaluating the accessibility of online resources during the selection and procurement processes. Some common digital accessibility issues, their impact on users with disabilities, and those accessibility guidelines and fixes that vendors can incorporate into their products to ameliorate these issues will be covered. As an informed customer, you should be able to take a more proactive role in educating vendors of viable product enhancements and improvements that could help you fulfill your obligations in selecting the most accessible resources for your students and employees. In addition, presenters will provide an introduction to legal requirements and discuss practical examples of how schools are working to meet these requirements.
