“508 Compliance: Creating Accessible Documents” will be presented by Patricia Devine, NN/LM PNR Network Outreach Coordinator; and Madelena Romansic, NN/LM PNR Program Assistant.
April 15, 2015 at 1 PM Pacific (noon Alaska 2 PM Mountain)
What is Section 508? For federally funded websites and other electronic resources, including the NN/LM PNR and its funded projects, Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology for people with disabilities. This session will focus on ways to make PowerPoint and Word documents 508 compliant so they can be accessed equally.
