Improve your knowledge of Web accessibility on May 9

05/08/2013

Learn more about Web accessibility--and if you manage Web pages, get them tested--at the free Global Accessibility Awareness Day event at UC Davis this Thursday, May 9.

The campus Electronic Accessibility Steering Committee, sponsored by Chief Information Officer Pete Siegel, has scheduled a program from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in 1310 Surge III. UC Davis staff will present sessions of 10 to 20 minutes each on these subjects, with the agenda repeating each hour:

  • Web accessibility overview
  • Testing websites for accessibility
  • Converting your documents into an accessible format
  • Creating accessible PDFs

To mark Global Accessibility Awareness Day, organizers are staging events in locations as varied as Brisbane, London and Maharashtra, as well as Davis. Each seeks to raise awareness about making the Web accessible to all visitors, including people with disabilities.

For more information about the event, or about the work of the Electronic Accessibility Steering Committee, email e-access@ucdavis.edu.
