A11y: Accessible Documents for Everyone

Name A11y: Accessible Documents for Everyone
Date 1/3/2022
Time 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Everyone deserves access to materials created by staff, teachers, administrators, even other learners. The rules on accessibility are clear: All materials need to be accessible to anyone who has a physical disability. And with 1 out of 4 people in the United States proclaiming a disability that requires some kind of accommodation, we need to be ready!

This workshop will provide basic information and vocabulary of how to add key accessibility features to your documents and presentations. There are many tools available to check for 508 Compliance and to ensure everyone has access to the materials you create. Resources, checklists, online tools and practice files will be provided.

NOTE: This session will demonstrate 508 Compliance features using Microsoft ® products on the Windows operating  system.

An OTAN Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to those that have pre-registered and attend at least 75% of the scheduled time.

OTAN workshops may be requested, customized, and scheduled by qualifying adult education agencies for their staff as targeted professional development.

OTAN workshops may be conducted as a "hands-on”, where participants are asked to provide their own devices, as “presentations” where a product or ideas are introduced, or as a discussion where all are encouraged to participate in a conversation around a specific idea or topic.

The desired outcome of every OTAN workshop is that participants will have a working understanding of the application or topics discussed and modeled.
