eLearning Accessibility Tips, Gotchas and Standards

12 Feb 2020
Theatre 10

You've just learned that due to new laws, or your organization's desire to be inclusive, that all your training content needs to be Section 508 or WCAG compliant, in other words accessible to all. Your first idea, providing a PDF of the course, was shot down. Separate but unequal won't cut it. Later you were reminded that "adding narration" to the course doesn’t make it accessible, it just adds unnecessary work and may conflict with screen readers. Hiring an accessibility expert just isn’t in the budget, so what is an instructional designer to do?
