What is Website Accessibility?
Website Accessibility to us means more than just a ‘website’ - it’s about creating a webcast or webinar that is inclusive to ALL viewers. The ultimate goal is to provide people with disabilities equal access to your live or pre-recorded content.
What are Accessibility Standards?
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 is developed through the W3C process and makes your content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including:
ꞏ Blindness and low vision
ꞏ Deafness and hearing loss
ꞏ Learning disabilities
ꞏ Cognitive limitations
Understanding the Four Principles of Accessibility
The guidelines are organized around the following four principles:
1. Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
2. Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable.
3. Understandable - Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
4. Robust - Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of assistive technologies.
Here’s some of the ways we overcome common accessibility errors:
Ensuring that the webcast can be successfully navigated by keyboard alone
Updating videos to include close captioning and full transcripts
