Web and Document Accessibility for Virtual Programming

Heather Stelljes and Keven Graeme

Kevin Graeme of Educational Technology Support and Heather Stelljes of Office of Access, Inclusion, and Compliance join forces to share information on creating accessible and inclusive document and web programming for participants with disabilities. Being thoughtful about disability access is a practice that benefits all users, learners, and participants, while also being a hard-fought federal mandate for the Division of Extension. In this breakout, we’ll cover the legal mandates for disability accommodations and accessibility by sharing broad information on apparent and non-apparent disabilities. We’ll share examples of inclusive practices in the virtual environment and demonstrate how to ensure accessibility. Additional resources to create online and document accessibility will also be shared.
