Accessibility Makeover: Practical Strategies for Equitable Web-Based Training
Presented by: Yvonne Urra-Bazain
ATD FWMC invites you to a live session we’re hosting to help you increase the accessibility of your courses. In 1 hour you’ll gain strategies for applying an accessibility makeover.
Accessibility is an important aspect of online learning. Yet, ensuring that all participants have equitable access to onboarding, upskilling, and other course materials can seem daunting. We may feel like we have more questions than there are answers. In an effort to demystify what accessibility compliance entails, Yvonne will demonstrate how she gives courses an accessibility makeover and how considerate adjustments can improve the user experience for all participants.
In this one hour session, Yvonne will discuss:
- What are the standards for accessibility?
- How is accessibility measured?
- Before and After: Adjusting content and controls to be perceivable by all users
- Before and After: Testing content and controls so they are operable by all users
