Description

The greater availability and improved ease of use of authoring tools now means that accessibility can be part of the content creation workflow for educators. Standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provide guidance, but these guidelines are written in technical language that can be confusing to even veteran developers. Fortunately, WCAG can be distilled into a set of simpler principles, as captured by the acronym POUR, that define four qualities of an accessible user experience. This poster presentation will focus on best practices for implementing POUR, including practical tips and tricks for making documents, presentations, and websites more accessible and inclusive for all learners.
