Make sure that your valued website, blog, ebooks, videos, syllabi, and reports provide equal access and opportunity to people with disabilities.
Genealogists with physical, mental, degenerative, and situational impairments struggle to read, hear, and interact with online content. This includes your content, unless you have created or updated it to meet accessibility best practices.
Creating your content in an accessible manner allows everyone to enjoy, learn from, and engage with your work. This approach also makes your content much more discoverable, readable, mobile-friendly, and much easier to update down the road.
This workshop (an extended version of my 1 hour lecture version) will walk you through a handful of core concepts and skills that will become second nature to you. This 2 hour workshop format allows us to slow down those explanations and demos, and dig into a deeper discussion about why and how.
NOTE: I can also convert this into a 3-4 hour hands-on format that will get you more comfortable using some of the excellent accessibility tools that are built into your favorite content creation applications or are available online for free. This is the format I teach at my day job, broken into a series of 1-2 hour workshops.
- Length: 2 hours, including Q&A (3-4 hours if hands-on)
- Audience: Genealogists and family historians
