On Tuesday April 26, 2011, there is a free workshop called, “Section 508 Testing and Remediation: Application and Best Practices.” Presenters include Paul Lloyd, USDA Target Center, and Nicshan Floyd, Office of Accessible Systems and Technologies, DHS.
There will be seats in the Library of Congress, Montpelier Room, Madison Building as well as a webcast. Registration is required for both. For information on attending in person and to receive a security badge contact Katherine Otts by April 25.
This workshop will focus on how to ensure access barriers to electronic information and technology are eliminated by testing products, software, applications and web content in advance to the Section 508 Standards. Mr. Floyd and Mr. Lloyd will discuss testing methods, manual and automated testing tools, other available resources and share best practices for conducting Section 508 testing and remediating non-compliance. The presenters will share their experience, examples, test scripts and best practices that can easily be used by technical and non-technical staff alike to integrate and complete Section 508 compliance testing in the agency Section 508 plans.
