Green Accessibility for Web Developers

Accessibility and "greening the web" can both have incredibly positive impacts for people accessing information and services online. Speaker Amy Drayer, the user interface developer for the University of Minnesota, is involved in many accessibility communities, as well as climate and sustainability communities, and has spoken on both topics for more than five years. 

In her presentation, she will:

  • Introduce both web accessibility and sustainability guidelines
  • Include a look at the state of the web
  • Discuss several techniques to address concerns identified in the trends 

The target audience is web designers and developers, but all are welcome!

Data Visualization

How to present data in an inclusive and accessible manner has been a session request for a while. Unfortunately, it has proven difficult to find speakers with experience in this area. Thankfully, this month we are joined by Neha Bansal, senior director of application development in the Office of Information Technology, to discuss accessibility in data visualization.

Captioning

Videos and teleconferencing are part of everyone’s daily life in a (nearly!) post-pandemic world. But videos by themselves often leave a large gap for those who do not rely on hearing to communicate, or who otherwise have difficulty interpreting speech. This month we welcome back accessibility ambassador Amanda Ryan, academic technologist at the Institute on Community Integration, to share her knowledge of captioning.
