Event Background 

On a technical level, making web content accessible to diverse audiences --
including those with disabilities -- requires knowledge of specific design
techniques. But as important as these techniques are, if they are
implemented only some of the time, or by only some of the developers, the
overall result likely will be inaccessible to some portion of the

Accessibility -- especially within large organizations -- requires
consistent attention at all stages of development, from planning to
developing and evaluation. It also requires cross-sector expertise with
organizations. Accessibility should be taken into account as part of the
larger picture of quality control, in contexts such as: 

*	Purchasing: Buying software or web services 
*	Human Resources: Hiring potential employees 
*	Graphic Design: Creating web site designs and templates 
*	Database Architecture: Designing databases that will serve content
to the web 
*	Web Services: Creating intranets 
*	Web Programming: Creating web-based authoring or editing
*	Writing: Writing content that will appear on the web 
*	and so on. 

This presentation will take a closer look at how to make accessibility a
part of systems-level approaches to quality control and design. It will also
provide an overview of the techniques (because yes, the techniques are
important too!), and provide extensive resources for further information.
