Working with Vendors to Achieve Accessible Solutions
November 1, Tuesday 3:00-4:30; Eastern Time
Presenter: Jane Berliss-Vincent, Assistive Technology Manager, University of Michigan
Description: Current law puts the responsibility on postsecondary institutions to adopt accessible products rather than on vendors to make their products accessible. We will discuss strategies for working with vendors to achieve desired accessibility outcomes. A new resource has also been developed to support vendors on accessibility topics called the Vendor Guide to Web Accessibility, a project of the Big 10 Academic Alliance ITAG group to provide necessary information to the administrative decision makers within commercial companies.
Remember - Cost for ATHEN Members to attend this and any of the other AHEAD Webinar sessions is the same as AHEAD members. When registering for the webinar, choose the option for “I qualify for AHEAD member rates” to get your discount!
We hope you take advantage of this benefit!
