Instructor, Jon Gunderson, Ph.D., ATP & RESNA member Sponsored by the Division of Rehabilitation - Education Services, College of Applied Life Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, and the Great Lakes ADA and Accessible IT Center, Department of Disability and Human Development, University of Illinois at Chicago http://www.adagreatlakes.org 

This course is designed for web content developers to learn about the disability access issues faced by people with disabilities in using the web and how web resources can be designed to improve accessibility. The course provides a foundation on how people with disabilities access information on the web using mainstream browsers and specialized assistive technologies like speech renderings. Participants will learn about the two main standards for web accessibility, the W3C Web Content Accessibility Standards and the Section 508 requirements for web materials. The strengths and weaknesses of different evaluation and repair tools will be presented to help participants understand how to use the available tools to evaluate and repair their web resources. Participants will learn about common HTML accessibility problems, and HTML and CSS techniques that can be used to improve accessibility.

Captioning of multimedia materials is also covered for Microsoft Media Player, Real Player and Quicktime, and the accessibility of non-W3C technologies like PDF and Flash will also be discussed.
