An Introduction to Web Accessibility

Web accessibility can be defined as making sure websites work for the widest possible audience. While the focus is on people with disabilities, the core principle is inclusion. The goal is to create web sites that more people can use effectively in more situations. In this presentation, Mark will introduce web accessibility and why it matters, give a brief overview of the legal landscape, demonstrate tools and techniques to identify accessibility issues, and provide a framework for creating a web accessibility program.
