Featured Sessions

Scanning & Monitoring Websites for Accessibility
From the recent state audit review, one key recommendation was that colleges should implement a scanning and monitoring solution for their public-facing websites. Different tools and strategies are available for colleges to address this issue, including the use of automated tools and periodic manual checks. We will be discussing different approaches college can adopt to support website accessibility evaluations.

Including Accessibility as Part of Procurement
A critical step toward improving the accessibility of campus-wide information technology resources is to ensure that what you are purchasing meets accessibility standards. This group activity examines various case studies where accessibility intersects with the procurement and acquisition of web and IT products.

Accessibility Testing & Interpreting VPATs
When selecting web and IT products, vendors often provide a VPAT as evidence of their accessibility testing. Yet these accessibility reports often portray a very accessible product when in fact there may be significant barriers to using the product. Learning to read and interpret vendor accessibility reports, and deciding when you should test the product, is a necessary process for selecting the web and IT product that is the most accessible and meets your business requirements.
