Review Federal 508 Compliance guidelines and their practical application in content creation.
Prepare test content and understand how to leverage extensions to test accessibility.
Test social media, advertising, and web page content for accessibility.
Creating compliant material is the right thing to do, but it can seem like an expensive undertaking and an enormously high bar to meet. In this project you will become familiar with Federal 508 compliance standards and how they can become an asset to an organization’s goal of connecting individuals with content in a meaningful way. You will also gain hands-on experience with a no-cost technique for one component of accessibility testing. That is testing for color blindness accessibility with the Colorblindly extension in your Chrome Browser. By the end of this project, you will be able to confidently leverage Chrome browser extensions to test information accessibility, so that you can ensure that as much of your audience as possible can intuitively take in and interact with your organization’s information. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
