Quick Accessibility Audits: Gen Herres

May 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Quick Accessibility Audits

The most common question regarding accessibility is, “How bad is a given site, and what’s it going to take to fix it?” Most people would like to get at least a ballpark answer without spending $1,000. This session will cover how we use a quick audit to answer these common questions and move forward on solving accessibility issues.

  • How accessible or inaccessible is a given website?
  • How do you determine your major pain points?
  • How do you identify which parts of your site are causing the most accessibility issues?
  • How do you use this information to choose what direction to take in remediating the site?

These meetups take place via Zoom and are live captioned. You must register to attend via Zoom.
