Web Accessibility Compliance Testing

Wednesday, November 7, 2012: 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The internet era continues to transform the way we consume information in our personal and professional lives. Mobile devices and cross-platform content delivery services reach an exponentially growing user base from all demographics.  However, the vast majority of web content remains partially or completely inaccessible by people with disabilities or aging-related conditions. For example, vision and hearing difficulties present tremendous barriers for interacting with the internet.  In response, governments around the globe are beginning to introduce web accessibility legislation demanding a more accessible user experience for government and certain privately-owned internet sites.  As a tester, are you ready for this change?
