Section 508 Best Practices Webinar

Registration is now open for the U.S. Access Board’s SECTION 508 BEST PRACTICES WEBINAR

TITLE:  Section 508 and the HHS Section 508 Enterprise Lifecycle
TIME:  Thursday, November 20, 2014, 1:00 – 2:30 PM Eastern Time (10:00 AM Pacific)

Case study of how one agency incorporates accessibility into the process of engineering and deploying large systems.  The presenter will describe how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ensures accessibility from the first idea until the system is retired.  He will discuss how to integrate Section 508 into the established process for development.  The challenges of the iterative development process, and the tradeoffs with large customizable off the shelf software packages will be addressed.

Accessibility isn’t really that difficult if it is incorporated into the Enterprise Performance Life Cycle from the beginning.

Who should attend? This training is geared for government employees and contractors working in the enterprise life cycle, and for those involved in incorporating Section 508 into their agency processes.  This event is for people who want to learn more about how to integrate accessibility into the development process.

Presenter:   Mark D. Urban, HHS Program Team Co-Chair and CDC Section 508 Coordinator
Moderator:  Timothy Creagan, Senior Accessibility Specialist, U.S. Access Board
