Hello All!

I wanted to share this webinar with interested parties as it's a little eye opener for those working in web development to comply with WCAG 2.0 lvl AA, and those who are involved with web based procurements, as it brings a better understanding of WCAG guidelines by discussing the accessibility checks and exceptions to the rule. It was part of the inclusion24 event during GAAD day. There were a few other noteworthy webinars that day, but this one stuck out in my mind from the rest.

Maybe it's cause I saw this in person, so maybe I'm being biased here?

Webinar: Accessibility Testing or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Ignore WCAG
Presenter: Luis Garcia

Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLU8iGvdGK8&list=PL95LOQw9SLWxmcZtzBiFuT9HAJKFJnl2n&index=5

I was attempting to find the webinar from Google where they were discussing automating the color contrast of text and links using Javascript and CSS. It was phenomenal. I actually felt like a student again as the presenter discussed HOW they came up with the code they did to automate everything. If I find it, I'll forward that one as well.
