This article will provide a hands-on experience on how to use open source tools to evaluate and understand the accessibility of entire organizations to individual pages based on the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and AA requirements. Participants are encouraged to bring and use their own devices during the workshop to analyze websites of their choice. The workshop will use their results as a discussion point of how the tools provide information on accessibility and discuss the strengths and limitations of automated testing. The workshop will discuss how the OpenAjax evaluation library is based on the W3C HTML5 specification and ARIA Authoring Practices to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA requirements. The workshop provides a listening point for the developers for workshop participants to provide feedback to improve the design and utility of the tools and to guide development of new features.

1. Using site-wide summary reports for planning, managing and reporting web accessibility.

2. Use of HTML5 and ARIA design techniques for meeting WCAG 2.0 requirements.

I’m not on board with this post. Your opening points are sound enough, but conversely it’s unreliable to depend upon what others may think. Please clarify some things, because I believe you’re a good blogger and I hope to see more from you!|

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
