Tech Mash Up: "What is accessibility and why does it matter?" - June 19th, 2018

Presented by Neovation

Do you know what accessibility is? How about inclusive design? Have you ever heard of WCAG, POUR or ARIA? In this introduction to accessibility, you'll learn about assistive devices & technologies, accessibility standards & tools, and some quick and easy next steps for making your sites and applications more accessible to all users.

A (mostly) non-technical primer on accessibility and inclusive design, meant to raise awareness and interest in the topic. As an issue that's been ignored and pushed to the side for too long, accessibility is getting more attention due to legislative changes, and the efforts of grassroots activists. This talk will explain why accessibility isn't just a social, moral or ethical issue, it's good business too.
