Are you interested but unsure of how to start testing your Web applications, learning objects and online content for accessibility? Join us to hear about Seneca Libraries’ experience with accessibility testing, and watch a live screen-reading session led by our student auditor. Stay for a discussion about how you can set up and run your own accessibility audits, make use of the findings, and create online content that supports diverse learning needs.

Would you like us to test a specific Web page or part of a Learning Object? Submit your suggestions at http://bit.ly/OLArapidtesting.

– Accessibility testing can be done informally and on a shoestring budget.
– Accessibility checkers (software) and AODA are not enough.
– See how a screen reader performs when accessing a website and see how a power user troubleshoots these challenges.
