Accessibility Training

Access Ingenuity provides training to give you the tools and skills to evaluate and remediate accessibility barriers in documents and websites as well as help end users learn to use assistive technology effectively. Sample trainings are described below but we will customize trainings based on the specific needs of your organization and personnel.

  1. DOCUMENT ACCESSIBILITY TRAINING:

PDF/DOC CUSTOMIZED “SHORT ISSUES” TRAINING & GUIDELINES: First, we investigate what type of accessibility issues you have with your documents.  We then develop Accessibility Guidelines and a Checklist specifically for your use.  Finally, we demonstrate how to use those guidelines along with Before and After examples of your document. This training is 1 hour long and can be either remote or onsite.

PDF/DOC CUSTOMIZED “IMPLEMENTATION” TRAINING: Building off the “Short Issues” course above, the Implementation training will walk you through the steps in implementing the guidelines.  This includes using tools in Acrobat Professional, as well as the original authoring applications.  This class takes approximately 4 hours.
