Breaking Down Barriers -The Accessible Website Workshop

Breaking Down Barriers -The Accessible Website Workshop

On Tuesday, December 4, 2018, the City of Brantford will host a free workshop on accessible websites. The workshop aims to help not-for-profit organizations discover how maximizing online accessibility can increase their website traffic and boost their audience base. The workshop features tips and ideas to service the organization’s established audience and how to expand their potential by making their website more user-friendly.
 
The workshop is practical in nature, and will give the participating organizations knowledge to understand the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and how it relates to their websites. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is an Ontario law mandating that organizations must follow standards to become more accessible to people with disabilities. The goal for the province is to be fully accessible by 2025. All levels of government, private sectors, and non-profits must comply with this legislation. The standards of the AODA give all people an equal footing as they work, play, learn, teach, buy, sell, and use their diverse talents to benefit their communities and their province.
 
The workshop will feature two guest speakers:
 
Jenny Sawicki
Coordinator; Municipal Accessibility Plan, City of Brantford
 
Karen McCall
Accessible Document Design Consultant and Trainer, Karlen Communications
 
Both speakers will help your organization understand the need and benefits of an accessible website through lively demonstrations and engaging group interactions. Whether you are a novice or well versed in website layout, it benefits everyone to ensure your website is accessible, functional and informative.
 
Details:
Tuesday, December 4, 2018,
9:00AM to 12:00PM
