Web accessibility is not “nice to have” or a boutique service, but is instead the shared, foundational responsibility of anyone and everyone in a newsroom, whether they realize it or not.

Join this essential best practices session for resources, tips and tricks and to learn how to make your work accessible to people with disabilities.

This session is designed for:

  • People looking for a basic understanding of the international guidelines and laws regarding web accessibility (yes, it’s in laws!)
  • Editors and producers interested in improving their outlets’ relative web accessibility
  • People looking for tips on how to persuade managers and editors the necessity of including accessibility at all stages of the process
