Abstract (up to 200 words):
The session will be introduced by Lisa Fiedor, who is a specialist in accessibility and usability within the Learning Technology Service at NCSU. Federal law requires that all university programs and services, including web pages, must be accessible to persons with disabilities. This session will introduce participants to the concept of web accessibility, and will explore a variety of accessibility problems and solutions. It will include an overview of the Federal Section 508 web accessibility guidelines, and will examine and critique a variety of web pages (good and bad) on their accessibility. A variety of tools for assessing and repairing accessibility problems will also be reviewed. This video about web design for accessibility was developed as a part of the Faculty Development Outreach Initiative of NCSU. Viewing of the video will be followed by a question and answer session about accessibility and web design, facilitated by session leaders.
