The deadline in Ontario to make our websites accessible is next January. While we have a set of guidelines to follow, it’s not always clear how to best implement the Web Consortium Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) in a practical manner. While guidelines are necessary to cover a minimum standard, web accessibility should come from good web design without ‘sacrificing’ features. To make a website accessible, you will also need material that your content creators understand. Come learn how to make a website more accessible for everyone.

This presentation will focus on HTML and CSS, but will touch on custom interfaces.
