In 2014, most Canadian businesses will face significant challenges as government regulations go into effect, requiring websites to be accessible to users with disabilities. Are your project teams knowledgeable about the technical accessibility standards? Is your business ready to comply with the regulations? Dan Shire and David Best review the key principles of web accessibility (WCAG 2.0) and the government regulations (including Ontario’s AODA) that your organization must meet. Dan provides specific guidance on planning and executing effective accessibility testing and for building your test team skills. David demonstrates testing tools and techniques, including the use of assistive technology including the JAWS screen reader. Together, they will review IBM’s practical experiences: focusing your testing efforts on the most critical standards, selecting your testing tools, building and training your test teams, and prioritizing the results of your accessibility testing to achieve the maximum benefits for the business while minimizing cost and schedule impacts to the project.
