Easy Checks for Web Accessibility: Get the Gist

Session Evaluation

Class description

Have you ever wondered: “Is this web page accessible?” If you can use the Web, you can get a good start at an answer — no expertise required! Whereas web accessibility evaluation tools spit out complex results that require knowledge to interpret, the W3C resource “Easy Checks – A First Review of Web Accessibility” provides a different approach. It walks you through some basic accessibility evaluation with guidance for understanding what you are checking. Most people can complete these checks in about 10 minutes once they understand them. If you’re new to web accessibility, it will take some time to learn.

This session provides a jump start to understanding and using Easy Checks so that you can start to answer: “Is this web page accessible?”
