Demystifying the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
Composed of principles, guidelines, and testable success criteria, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is used to identify Web accessibility requirements. Countries, companies, and organizations rely on WCAG as an international recommendation. In short, WCAG is the de facto standard of Web Accessibility.
However, it is hard to understand the implications of the WCAG. Written in precise language that can be hard to interpret and fully understand, its 4 principles, 13 guidelines, and 78 success criteria can be very intimidating at first glance.
In this full-day workshop with Knowbility’s Sr. Accessibility Strategist, Becky Gibson, you will dive into WCAG using real-world examples in order to help you make your own digital content more accessible to people for all abilities.
- Learn each of the Level A and AA success criteria.
- Discover how each Success Criterion affects people with disabilities.
- Determine whether the designer, developer, or the content author is responsible for meeting each success criterion.
- Learn fundamental accessibility testing techniques and tools.
Who should attend?
- This online workshop is intended for all accessibility skill levels.
- Familiarity with HTML, CSS, and browser inspect tools is helpful but not required
- To fully participate in the examples, install at least one of the following testing aids in your browser. In order of preference: WebAim WAVE, Paul J. Adam’s Bookmarklets, or Testing tools (not needed if you are familiar with browser inspect tools such as Chrome DevTools).
- Registration cost is per screen; invite your team to join you in a conference room so everyone can learn! (Individual links may not be shared.)
- Group & academic rates are available.
- Receive unlimited replays of the training video for one year after the video is posted.
