Introduction to Web AccessibilityRyerson Author

By: Digital Education Strategies, The Chang School, Ryerson University

Introduction to Web AccessibilityMuch of the current information on Web accessibility requires some technical understanding, and may be difficult to consume for the average person. The instruction here will “interpret” the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), to make it easier to understand for a general audience. You will have an opportunity to experience barriers firsthand, then experience that content with the barriers removed, developing a practical understanding of web accessibility.
