Location:  5907 Math Sciences Building, UCLA
Monday, October 15, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Learn about the challenges facing students, faculty and staff with disabilities and how you can empower this population though accessible design.

People who are blind, low-vision or have dyslexia rely on assistive technologies and screenreading software to “read text out loud” to them. However, many documents and websites created are completely inaccessible or just frustrating for screenreader users. Learn accessible design and content management tools to make it easier for people with disabilities to engage with your website content and documents. During the hour long active learning session, you will learn the impact of accessible websites and documents, simple methods how to build in accessibility in current content, and have an opportunity for hands-on experience building accessible webpages and documents.
