Webinar: Web Accessibility Analytics And Open Source Tools For Inspecting And Auditing Web Resources For Accessibility

May 22nd, 2014. 1.00pm to 2.30pm Central Time

Web accessibility analytics is important to provide managers, administrators and developers with objective information about the accessibility of the resources that are part of communicating information about their organization and the services they provide. Data is important to help determine the types of accessibility issues and how to allocate scarce resources to improve accessibility. Analytics provides a way to set measurable goals for accessibility improvements and gives developers a way to verify their accessibility improvements. The Open Web Accessibility Alliance is creating open source tools and web development resources for web developers and designers.

The presentation will demonstrate the AInspector Sidebar and FAE 2.0 which are open source tools to help web developers understand the accessibility features and problems with the resources they are developing. In addition to the tools the coding practices web resources will be also presented. The coding practices are designed to help web developers understand the accessibility issues of meeting the requirements of Section 508 and W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 requirements. The rules used in the tools support compliance with W3C WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA Success Criterion. Since the tools are open source they can be customized to meet the accessibility policies and priorities of each organization.
