The New Standard on Accessibility: Leaving No Content Behind Online

Presented by the Center for Plain Language

  • Washington, D.C., USA
  • May 10, 2016
  • Venue: National Press Club, 529 14th St. NW, 13th floor, Washington, DC 20045
  • Led by David Berman

Most websites handle basic trouble spots like people using old browsers. But corporate and government professionals as well as consultants could use a hand when it comes to understanding the importance of new and emerging accessibility standards for the web. From the content to the design to how your site works, accessibility is a critical component of a successful site.

Web sites that don’t address the needs of people with disabilities fail to deliver the promise of a “Web for all.” That’s bad for a democratic society and bad for business.

Join us May 10 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. as internationally recognized expert David Berman leads a workshop to help make your site more accessible. He’ll talk about current standards and guidelines.

At this workshop, you’ll learn “about” and “how-to.” You’ll learn how to make your current sites more accessible by complying with current standards and guidelines such as:

  • why accessibility matters to everyone, not just people with disabilities
  • which disabilities are helped by accessible design
  • how assistive technologies work
  • how accessibility helps your bottom line
  • which regulations apply to accessibility


Last date for registration: May 5.
