Creating and delivering accessible content is easier than you might realize, and it is a must

Whether you are creating accessible web pages, interactive projects, web meeting, or PDF files, a little preparation goes a long way towards creating an accessible document. During this session, you will learn the foundation information you will need to create projects that meet various accessibility standards and see the tools you can employ to continually improve the accessible nature of the work you do. We discuss four topic areas:

 

Adobe Acrobat and PDF (30 min)

Creating and publishing accessible content in a PDF file

As a standard digital document, the PDF is an important part of any information sharing process. However, it is crucial to ensure that the information contained within the document is accessible to your entire audience—not just segments of it. During this session, you will learn how to create an accessible PDF in the first place, determine if a PDF is accessible, and to intervene in a PDF that lacks accessibility.

 

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 and HTML—including HTML5 (30 min)

Ensuring the accessibility of your web content

HTML is one of the most common ways to deliver content today, and much if it is not accessible at all. With some basic shifts in thinking and a few workflow adjustments, you can better plan for and create accessible HTML. You will learn about the needs for HTML and the ways to create accessible HTML with Adobe Dreamweaver.

 

Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5 and the Flash platform (30 min)

Interactive projects that can be used by the entire community

It is a misconception that Flash is not accessible. Much like HTML, it depends on the way you create it—and how the project you create with Flash has been built. During this session you learn the 5 best-practice ways to create an accessible Flash project and the mistakes to avoid when creating a project that would make the project inaccessible to your audience.

 

Adobe Connect 8 (30 min)

eLearning from the perspective of accessible content 

Any web conferencing solution will have a major need for accessibility. In the latest version of Connect, there are several features that allow people to take advantage of the content in your web meeting no matter who they are. You will see how to leverage that work with keyboard shortcuts, accessible content within Connect, and by adding Closed Captioning to your meetings.
