It’s been a while since I’ve promoted webinars from the the User Experience Professionals Association International (UXPA).
If you didn’t know, I was an officer for our local Michigan chapter of UXPA for several years.
And I didn’t want to miss sharing an upcoming webinar that combines two of my interests: accessibility and user experience.
UXPA will host their free one-hour webinar, Universal Design with Accessibility in Mind on August 23, 2019.
Universal Design with Accessibility in Mind
Led by Kara Zinkle and Simon Dermer of Essential Accessibility, the webinar will focus on the importance of universal design and how it can be used to design online experiences usable by everyone.
In the webinar, you will learn:
- Accessibility terminology: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), Section 508 (508), Americans with Disability Act (ADA)
- How to focus on the barrier and not the disability
- What is appropriate content etiquette
- About various types of assistive technology
In addition, Zinkle and Dermer will share info about the size of the disability market, trends, as well as the return on investment that accessible user experiences deliver.
An international organization with over 2,400 members around the world, UXPA supports
people who research, design, and evaluate the user experience of products and services.
Members come from many backgrounds, sharing the same goals: creating products and services that meet the needs of the people using them.
Local chapters offer invited speaker presentations, roundtables, professional development, networking, and other events focused on bringing UX professionals and students together.
The free webinar will be held on August 23, 2019 at noon Eastern Daylight Time using Zoom video conferencing.
