Event: Accessibility and AODA – Implications and Opportunities for Software, Website and Mobile Application Design.

Accessibility and AODA – Implications and Opportunities for Software, Website and Mobile Application Design.

Organisations in Ontario need to become fully compliant with the new AODA legislation, if not they will be vulnerable to large fines. Experts tell us that there are even greater rewards for inclusive design and AODA compliance in the form of better products and services, and improved marketing opportunities.

Conestoga College has organised a talk to give their students a strong introduction to these issues, and have brought together talented speakers to discuss design and accessibility.

For organisations and employees, this is an excellent opportunity to be introduced and gain greater insights into software design for AODA legislation and accessibility.
