Section 508 – Accessible Web Content (WCAG 2.0)

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Description

In the 2010, the Board’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on Section 508 proposed to incorporate the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, also known as WCAG 2.0. The WCAG 2.0 is published and maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and are the internationally recognized standards for web accessibility. WCAG is a somewhat intimidating document, and the linked hyperlinked resources can be confusing for a first time reader. This session will provide a “walk thru” of WCAG and related materials.
