Overview to Document Accessibility

September 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

$80.00 – $100.00

Self-Paced Learning

Many people have difficulty meeting the accessibility requirements under the AODA, particularly those related to Information & Communications Standard. This webinar will give you a well-rounded understanding of how documents can be made accessible. Participants in this live webinar will learn about the background and theory of accessibility, how accessibility effects document creation, and what changes in your organization’s current workflow and process are required.

1 in 7 people in Ontario currently have a disability and this is expected to rise to 1 in 5 by 2036 as the population ages. By creating accessible documents, you are including people with disabilities – whether they be clients, employees, the public, or board members. By understanding accessibility issues and the strategies to tackle them, your organization can communicate more effectively while complying with legal and moral responsibilities.
