Website Document Accessibility and Compliance

Description
Organizations are rushing to make their websites and content accessible because of lawsuits, legislation and the desire to serve their customers. However, the documents hosted on these websites are often overlooked. It is difficult to make these documents accessible because few tools can analyze and report on their accessibility compliance. Some PDF accessibility tools exist, but they are difficult to use, expensive or do not provide a complete workflow or remediation process. Scanning a website, finding all content, evaluating for compliance and providing rich analysis and accessibility reporting for all major document types, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and ePub, not just PDFs, are key factors to consider. This session will discuss the importance of considering an entire website, including content when making websites accessible. Some tools can make this process easy and efficient without disrupting website functionality. Being able to navigate a website freely, without any barriers, is a right everyone has, but making the website accessible is not enough. The content must be made accessible as well and maintained as such to ensure inclusivity at all times. In even fewer words: Making websites accessible is important, but it's not enough to make the website itself accessible. The content on the website must also be accessible. Some tools can make this process easier and more efficient.
