Why Creating and Maintaining Accessible Digital Resources is Neither Easy nor Optional - Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

Organizations today — whether colleges and universities or third-party providers — are investing considerable funds and effort in building technology platforms, content, features that make the content discoverable and usable, and an interface that allows users to navigate the resource. Creating and maintaining an accessible digital resource is no simple feat. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 AA standards require providers to support visual, auditory, and manual accessibility. To create accessible resources requires an understanding of these standards, routine monitoring, testing, evaluation, and most important, building accessibility into the DNA of code development and web design. http://www.thetechedvocate.org/opinion-creating-maintaining-accessible-digital-resources-neither-easy-optional/
