Intro - Web Accessibility, WCAG 2.0, and Section 508 Compliance (Online Live ONLY)

In this hands-on, two-day Introduction to Website Accessibility course is an introduction to website accessibility and accessibility legislation, including Section 508 (including the 2017 updates). It explores each of the current accessibility guidelines, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), to understand the intention of each guideline, as well as how to fix code or make other changes on a website to meet the guideline. The course covers types of conformance claims, what they should contain, and how to maintain conformance once it is achieved.

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.

Throughout the course, students use a variety of auditing tools to evaluate web pages for accessibility including screen readers, browser plugins, and online tools and resources. In addition, the course provides opportunities to edit HTML code to address specific accessibility issues, such as forms and tables. Learn more.
