As part of the university’s year-round commitment to accessibility, UFIT is sponsoring a one-hour workshop (live webinar) on using Siteimprove. Siteimprove, available to UF colleges and administrative units via the https://accessibility.ufl.edu/ website, is a web accessibility service that automates identifying Electronic Information Technology Accessibility issues. Siteimprove also assists in improving web accessibility (to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, A-AAA), helps monitor broken links and misspellings, and ensures that published contact information is up to date.
When: Wednesday, Nov. 10 │ 10:00-11:00 a.m.
How: Registration Link for Siteimprove 101
Details: Workshop is free to attend. Attendance is limited to 100 participants. A Zoom link will be sent to participants after they register.
Attending the Siteimprove 101 webinar is an excellent way for UF’s site admins, web managers, and web content editors to learn how to maximize their time fixing issues with the biggest impact on their site’s accessibility rating. World Usability Day is November 11, and everyone who publishes content to the web should be aware of UF’s obligation to improving site accessibility for all. Web accessibility and usability go hand in hand, so let’s ensure we are all working toward designing with usability in mind. Siteimprove is a great tool to enable this goal.
