GAAD 2021: Using Free Tools to Support Accessibility Checking

Accessibility checkers are software tools that check your digital technology against a set of accessibility rules and report any issues. Accessibility checkers are often third-party tools, extensions, or plug-ins, but many common applications come with integrated accessibility checking features.

In this session, we’ll review common accessibility checking tools for Office, PDF, web, and ICON content. Attendees will learn about accessibility standards, and how to identify and address accessibility issues in digital content. This session is offered at no cost, but registration is required.

Register here for this session.
