Accessibility Presentation on WCAG 3.0
February 11, 2021
This month’s Explore with Hadi meeting will be a little different. Instead of our normal meeting on the second Tuesday of the month, we invite you to join us for a special presentation on WCAG 3.0 on Tuesday, February 23, from 2-3PM Central Time. This presentation is truly a cross-campus collaboration, with folks involved in planning it from all 3 universities and the System Offices!
Here is the event information:
Recently the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published their working draft of the new Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which will go into effect in 2022 as WCAG 3.0. These guidelines are extremely important as they are the basis for state and federal laws on accessibility, as well as UI policies. We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, February 23, from 2-3 p.m. central time Jeanne Spellman, co-chair of the WCAG 3.0 project, will be speaking to the UI System. Jeanne started developing web content in 1993, specialized in web accessibility, and then web accessibility standards. She co-leads the project to develop WCAG 3.0.
WCAG 3.0 will be a change from the previous guidelines to account for various emergent technologies. Jeanne will give a 40-minute talk on these changes and will leave about 20 minutes for questions and answers. If you have questions for the speaker please send them no later than 5 p.m. Monday, February 22, 2021, to Vance Martin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
This presentation will have live captioning. It will be recorded and shared after the event. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact Vance Martin, email@example.com.
