Build a web accessibility evaluation toolkit

Accessibility is often overlooked in website design, but thanks to recent legislation like the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), awareness of this key feature is spreading. This hands-on module will introduce you to practical tools you’ll need to effectively identify accessibility barriers that may prevent people with disabilities from fully accessing the content of your website. Identifying the barriers is the first step to ensuring that your website meets AODA web accessibility requirements.
