Accessibility & AODA: it’s more than just alt tags

Saturday
12:00 pm
Room 359
Attend this Session

It’s one of the most important and least-understood online requirements in Ontario: the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. It’s the law, and if you do almost anything online professionally, it applies to you. Unfortunately, AODA rules & requirements can be almost impossible for laypeople to navigate, but which threaten massive fines if ignored.

Forewarned is forearmed: learn how to make your website, documents and videos more accessible in this session from Mark Farmer and Daniel Puiatti, from the Digital Team at the Ontario College of Teachers. The OCT made over 100 minutes of video, thousands of web pages and thousands of pages of PDFs accessible in the second half of 2016 alone. Learn some of the best practices, tips and tricks for getting your information compliant.

Key Take Aways

  • What is AODA and what do you need to do about it?

  • How can you get all this done without breaking the bank or your timeclock?
