Web 508 Accessibility BootCamp

In this hands-on, four-day Web Accessibility, WCAG 2.0, Section 508, & WAI-ARIA Compliance, with Advanced Web Pages & Applications training course introduces you to web content accessibility and usability for people with physical or cognitive disabilities. It introduces you to accessibility legislation (e.g., Section 508) and guidelines (WCAG 2.0). You will use a variety of tools to evaluate accessibility, such as audit tools, screen readers, browser tools, and online tools and resources. You will learn what to look for in an evaluation tool, what tools can and cannot do, and why human usability testing is vital. In the Advanced portion of this course,  you will examine techniques to make websites and web applications accessible, conforming to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA, using WAI-ARIA, HTML5, and CSS. You will examine in more detail a few of the topics that were presented in the Introduction to Web Accessibility, WCAG 2.0, and Section 508 Compliance Introduction course, including semantic markup, providing navigation components, creating accessible forms, providing robust labeling, error messages in validating forms, and complex tables.

Please note that the recent (June 2018) addition of 17 success criteria found in WCAG 2.1 are briefly covered in this course. However, like AAA-level criterion, 2.1 updates currently are not included in legislation, and so receive less focus. Learn more.
