Web Accessibility Seminar for Business Professionals

  • The Exchange 138 N. Brand, Suite 200 Glendale (map)

Hosted by Be Accessible
Speaker: Aaron Farber, IAAP-Certified web accesibility specialist at Be Accessible

Learn Why Accessibility Matters, Web Accessibility Guidelines, and How to Handle ADA Complaints.

We are entering the age of the professional internet. As processes have moved online and people rely more on the web, there are new and higher expectations for online businesses - in accessibility just as with security and privacy. Now, people have always set these expectations, deciding what websites or apps to use and spend their dollars on. But, businesses now operate in an in an environment facing constant threat from a whole class of private lawyers empowered to file complaints and extract settlements. Small businesses are treated as tech companies - that have the technical resources to immediately fix their website, and remove accessibility barriers. Most accessibility barriers are due to early flaws - flaws that could have been prevented by business owners choosing the right website platform for their organization and understanding the diverse ways that people will use their website. The seminar is for business professionals, entrepreneurs, marketers, developers or parties interested in learning about accessibility.
