Python for City Government Process Improvement

Feb 4, 2022 · Baltimore, United States of America

***Friday's Presentation Agenda***

**What:** The web should be accessible to everyone. Yet many of the practices that web developers and designers use to make their digital content visually appealing also make it exclusive. “Web Accessibility Matters” is a training course presented by Pat that describes how choices around color, text, and overall application design can expand your base of users and ensure that everyone can access the full set of features. **IMPORTANT** Before attending this talk please watch this introduction to web accessibility (https://www.w3.org/WAI/videos/standards-and-benefits/) and this overview on how a screen reader functions (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEbl5jvLKGQ)

**Who:** Patricia Fuller (Pat) has been a Web Administrator for the last 21+ years. She is interested in accessibility compliance and inclusion in all of its forms, but is particularly passionate about "Web Accessibility". Pat has invested dozens of hours developing and presenting her “Web Accessibility Matters” training to engineers and analysts across the city. Whenever web content creators and editors learn how to make their websites accessible and make application of the training she is somewhere in the background cheering them on.
