Event description

Description

Nearly one in six Manitobans is disabled by barriers where they work, live and play. It is easy to take simple things like accessing a website for granted, but barriers to accessibility are real and constant challenges for persons with disabilities. Accessible websites are very important and likely required under the Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA)

The focus of this one-day workshop will be to introduce attendees to website accessibility best practices so that they can start to make their websites more accessible for people with different disabilities.

What You Will Learn:

  • What kinds of software, hardware, and apps people may use to access your website.
  • The basics of the WCAG 2.0 standards.
  • Major accessibility concepts that can be applied to websites.
  • Practical tips, and some tools, to help start making your websites more accessible

When: March 27th | 9:30am - 4.30pm
Where: Media Classroom, Fourth Floor 345 McDermot Ave. – Creative Manitoba
Cost: $299 Members (Register at www.newmediamanitoba.com) | $349 Non-Members
