From David:

Watch the Recording of the Webinar hereThank you again to everyone who was involved in our recent webinar with 3Play Media. I was thrilled that so many professionals found the time to join us and participate! If you missed the accessibility webinar, don’t fret: catch it here!

We had a huge response from the webinar, and are thankful for all the positive feedback, including a bunch of people who took me up on the offer to beta test our Berman Accessibility Ribbon for Word! This new add-on for Microsoft Word for Windows 2010 and 2013 makes it easier for your team to create and maintain accessible Word files. (We welcome more testers: get yours here!)

We also had a bunch of requests for a list of all resources I mentioned during the event. So, we’ve assembled that list… resources ranging from those goggles I was wearing at the start of the show to lots of nerdy details about assistive technologies, accessibility guidelines, and testing tools.

Resource list:

Thank you to Kelsey Voy for helping pull our list together. Want way more resource links? Consider our complete manuals that cover every aspect of every standard for Web, documents, mobile, touch, distance learning.

See you at our next webinar!
