Procuring accessible software for e-learning: how ATAG can help

A presentation at WPCampus 2021 Online by Hidde de Vries

Web accessibility is easier when you do it earlier, and using tools that support accessibility is critical. This starts with purchasing decisions: which suppliers do you choose for accessible e-learning, plug-ins and integrations? How can you tell which tools will work? The W3C’s ATAG standard has a number of useful recommendations to help distinguish between accessible and inaccessible tools. In this session, you’ll learn more about applying this standard to increase accessibility across the board.
