Knowbility Masterclass: Accessibility Auditing

taught by: Alicia Evans, Emily Lewis, Eric Eggert


Session Summary

Learn how to audit like Knowbility!


Description

Join our team of accessibility experts to learn how we test and analyze websites for accessibility according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard. We’ll share common accessibility issues and how we audit them efficiently. We’ll also teach how we communicate accessibility issues to project managers and developers, so our clients can easily understand and fix them. 

In this full-day workshop, you’ll learn:

  • How people with disabilities use the web and why this understanding is essential for conducting a useful analysis

  • How WCAG 2.x success criteria ensure a baseline of accessibility

  • When and how to address accessibility issues that go beyond WCAG

  • How to test success criteria in a way that is not overwhelming

  • Where assistive technologies, like screen readers and voice input, fit into the testing process

You’ll also learn Knowbility’s workflow, from writing an accessibility issue to generating a report.
