LVAIC Advancing Digital Accessibility Symposium
March 20, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Does the word DAISY make you think of springtime flowers or digital accessibility? Are your WCAGs up to date? If not, should they be?
The LVAIC Advancing Digital Accessibility Symposium seeks to create a forum in which to address the challenges of providing digital accessibility across campus. The event is geared toward people with an interest or responsibility for digital accessibility.
The keynote address “Making Accessibility a Priority” by accessibility expert Keith Bundy will review some of the basics of accessibility and of compliance with the WCAG 2.1 guidelines. He will demonstrate the use of a screen reader in browsing the web and conclude with suggestions for making accessible design a priority within an institution.
Following the keynote, participants may choose between two breakout sessions that focus on cross-campus collaboration:
- Getting it Done at Swarthmore: Corrine Schoeb, Technology Accessibility Coordinator at Swarthmore College, and Jessica Brangiel, Librarian for Electronic Materials at Swarthmore College, will discuss the college’s grassroots efforts to address the systematic challenge of accessibility.
- Challenges and Success with Digital Accessibility: A facilitated round table discussion looking at digital accessibility on our campuses.
