CALS Web Services – Fall Updates & October Webinar

Accessibility @ UW-Madison

As a follow-up to our June 2023 web services webinar where we covered some aspects of the new digital accessibility policy at UW-Madison. There have been many exciting developments related to digital accessibility, and accessibility in-general at UW-Madison. Therefore, we wanted to take a moment to highlight this important topic, and direct our site admins and editors to some of the excellent resources, training, guidance and services that are available to help you ensure that your web pages and documents (pdf, word docs, etc.) are accessible.

Also in our fall webinar we are planning to do more of a deep dive into some of the digital accessibility resources and provide tips on how to make your content accessible.
