Web Accessibility Training for Drupal Web Publishers
Training Session Format:
The first 45 minutes is a training presentation, covering a detailed explanation of common web accessibility issues. There will be an optional, 45-minute, open "clinic-style" session, following the training. During this optional clinic time, users can apply the methods from the training to their own sites and ask for help solving accessibility issues.
What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility is a term used to describe a set of standard, consistent web publishing practices that we must follow so that all users — who may be vision-impaired, hearing-impaired, deaf, blind, color-blind, and have other impairments — can access ALL of the information we publish on the University’s public website.
The page templates used in Drupal have been adjusted this fall, to provide compliance with the web accessibility standard “WCAG 2.0 AA.” There are still some accessibility issues remaining within the content of Fredonia web pages. The goal of this training and clinic is to help departments address those issues and avoid future issues.
