The Basics of Manual and Automatic Testing for Section 508

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Testing whether a website or a document conforms to the Section 508 standards is an essential aspect of operating a Section 508 Program. This webinar will provide a basic understanding of manual testing and testing with an automated tool. It will answer these questions:
  • How does each type of testing work?
  • Why should an agency use one or the other, or both?
  • What are the benefits and limitations of different testing methods?
  • How can an agency use the results?

This webinar is geared for government employees, 508 practitioners and everyone who provides accessible content using Section 508.
