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.

This is Workshop 8 of:
Issues and Answers in Digitization
A Joint CENDI/FLICC/FADGI Workshop Series
With special support from the National Science Foundation

    Registration form says “Webcast registrations have reached our seat limit.” Why should there be a “seat limit” on a webcast? If there’s a demand, couldn’t you figure out some way to increase the limit? If the limit cannot be changed, then the question of whether this will be archived becomes more important.

      Hello Pete. Thanks for visiting the Accessibility Forum 2.0 blog. We are not sponsoring this event; we were just passing on the word about it. For questions, please contact Katherine Otts (kotts@nsf.gov). If there is a recording available after the event, we will also try to post a link to it here.

    Will there be a way to attend this workshop remotely? Will it be archived and made available in any form? Thanks.

      Yes, there will be a webcast. You have to register to receive the web invitation. I am not sure if the presentation will be archived. You could send a note to Katherine Otts (kotts@nsf.gov), one of the organizers, to ask. If it is available on the web, we will try to post a link here.
