GAME NIGHT REGISTRATION

National Disability Institute (NDI) seeks to create a set of resources and learning opportunities to focus on improving the financial health for small business owners with disabilities. This will include a series of webinars and accompanying tools, as well as bringing together entrepreneurs and small business owners with disabilities to be a part of a learning community.

Through peer support, the learning community will enable participants to problem solve, share challenges and solutions and gain knowledge and skills to improve their financial health and the health and stability of their small business. 

To help ensure that the learning opportunities are meeting identified needs, NDI asks your assistance to complete a brief, 5-minute survey to learn more about common financial health needs for entrepreneurs and small business owners with disabilities.

Wednesday, September 14, 2022, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. via Zoom | Register for the web accessibility testing seminar

Build a solid foundation in website accessibility to test your own websites. Properly testing a website for accessibility for blind and low-vision users may seem to be a daunting task,

You may be struggling with questions such as:

  • Which automated tool should I use?
  • How much manual testing is needed?
  • Do I need to know how to use a screen reader to test my site?

The National Federation of the Blind can help you answer these questions and more during a half-day Web Accessibility Testing seminar. This seminar will offer attendees information on various aspects of both manual and automated website accessibility testing. This seminar will include information on testing webpages with automated tools, reviewing automated testing tool reports, and using screen readers to manually test webpages.

Hands-on web accessibility testing experience included. The group will review and analyze a report from an automated website accessibility testing tool and will also be guided through testing a webpage manually with NVDA, a free screen reader software.

Recommended for website developers, web designers, web administrators, content administrators, site owners, site admins for a business or government agency, web coordinators, if you review websites.

Register for the web accessibility testing seminar.

It’s Worth the Effort

Accessibility simplifies and improves interactions with blind customers, employees, and employers. Accessible documents are useful to more than blind users. Most of the features added to increase accessibility also make projects easier to use for a wide variety of people.

  • Keyboard users
  • Those with small screen devices
  • Dictation software users
  • People using automated tools to gather information on documents, webpages, and other media.
  • Some accessibility features can make a project easier to migrate to other platforms or formats.

Creating accessible documents can be simple and powerful for anybody to incorporate into their workflow. Accessibility boutiques and seminars are workshops presented by our access technology experts that provide introductions to accessibility best practices and the latest trends in access tech.
