It can be all too easy to forget that the final letter “A” in DEIA is for accessibility. However, it is critical — and in many cases, a legal requirement — to ensure that the information being created, curated, and disseminated is accessible to all. This four-hour event will cover the perspectives and expertise needed to ensure that products and services meet required accessibility specifications. Whatever the product or interface, coordinating efforts between users, developers, administrators, information professionals, and others key stakeholders and service providers is essential. What are the stumbling blocks and what are some of the emerging solutions – whether technological or standards-based? Attendees will come away with a greater understanding of what’s needed and what’s possible.
