NCompass Live: Accessibility Isn’t Just for Patrons! Internal Documentation for Everyone

How can we be sure that core principles of accessibility are being met, even for ourselves? Find out on next week’s NCompass Live webinar on Wednesday, February 8 at 10am CT.

The World Health Organization estimates that 15% of the world’s population (more than 1 billion people) have an accessibility need. We understand that content needs to be read and understood by a wide variety of readers – and our internal documentation is no different. How can we be sure that core principles of accessibility are being met, even for ourselves? Different accessibility actions to be discussed include some core ADA suggestions such as alt text or descriptions, heading usage, and font choices. In addition, extra actions such as presenting in multiple formats, clarity of language and purpose, and consistency in formatting will also be discussed.
