Join us for Accessibility Matters hosted by Xplor and presented by Tony Graham on Wednesday, October 16, at 1:00 PM EDT.
XML, by itself, does not have any support for accessibility. XML is extremely flexible, but it needs to flex in the right directions if it is going to support the information necessary to make a document accessible. DITA includes some accessibility features, including some that are unique to DITA. In this webinar, Tony will guide you through of some of the features of the DITA, HTML, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and PDF/UA (Universal Accessibility) standards. We will focus more on file formats rather than User Agent behavior, since the information needed to make accessible HTML or PDF usually needs to be included in, or able to be inferred from, the source XML.
However, it’s rarely the raw XML that is presented to users. This webinar will also stray into some aspects of styling the content to make it more accessible.
