WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) is a document developed by the W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium), bringing together the largest companies and organizations in the world. For their cause was established so. The initiative WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) standard that specifies the creation of web pages accessible to the greatest number of users. The current document concerns the availability of web content, and is a kind of a set of principles that should be guided by the creator of the website, to make it maximally accessible to all users, with disabilities and without.
Standard WCAG 2.0 is also the reference point for national legislation. Regulation of the Minister of 12 April 2012. (The National Interoperability Framework, the minimum requirements for public records and exchange of information in electronic form and minimum requirements for ICT systems) imposes on all public institutions the obligation to bring sites in line with the standards set out in this the document - May 31, 2015.
In view of the above, as well as the continuing adjustment measures carried out by the CLB in different areas, our institution has developed a new version of its website (available from 31.05.2015), which meets the required criteria. To be published on the website contents were properly prepared and meet the requirements of WCAG 2.0 we decided to organize training on this issue. To invite participation in the Podlasie or employees of other cultural institutions. It will be a practical workshop, discussing specific actions and methods of working with text, images, audio or video recording so that their publication on the internet meets accessibility requirements. Classes are primarily dedicated to people who in their institutions responsible for creating and publishing digital content on the Internet. NOTE: to ensure comfortable working conditions for all participants, we ask that your participation reported by people who with the theme of accessibility of websites are already familiar, or to come and participants learned basic concepts, guidelines and regulations for WCAG 2.0. We encourage you to prepare specific questions and issues that are important from the perspective of your institution.
