Using Assistive Technology (AT) in Accessibility Testing

Target Audience: Beginners
Assistive technology is fascinating and empowering to people with disabilities, yet it presents compliance challenges for producers of online content. Technology provides endless opportunities to gain access to services and content, but often organizations misunderstand or don’t know the accessibility guidelines or how to test for accessibility.
Join us for our September 24 webinar to learn how you can use assistive technology in accessibility testing.
Web Components and Accessibility
Date: Wednesday, October 8, 2014
Time: 11:00 a.m. Eastern (UTC – 4 hours)
Speaker: Karl Groves, Senior Technical Lead, Accessibility Software Consultant, Director of Training, The Paciello Group
There's an exciting new technology available to developers: Web components. They offer a new way to encapsulate new functionality into webpages directly, allowing for custom elements with their full presentation logic and business logic to be built in as though they were native. This technology also allows for new, customized versions of existing native functionality and improvements to the native functionality without needing to require that functionality to be built from scratch. This creates new opportunities and challenges for accessibility.
Join us for our October 8 webinar to learn about Web components and accessibility.
Webinar Format: The webinars will be hosted in the Adobe Connect webinar platform, which is accessible with a variety of browsers and on mobile devices. Captioning will be provided. For additional details about Adobe Connect accessibility, go to this Adobe Connect Accessibility Features page.
