    Hello Evelyne!!!! Thank you for the information. There is a lot of information but very insightful. I am always using the phrase, ‘can’t teach an old dog new tricks.’ I am realizing that in this particular course I am learning a lot new platforms and ideas. I did decided not to use that phrase from this point on. It is good to know and understand there are guidelines to accessibility when creating websites or apps. I am also currently supervising our Educational assistants in our school. I am going to use the information you provide and share it with my staff. Thank you

      In that case, let me add to Evelyne’s list and share some of the information from that original Movable Feast post plus a few more: Web accessibility is not optional. There are so many excellent reasons to be fully compliant with WCAG 2.1 standards, including universal design for learning (UDL), search engine optimization (SEO increases quality and quantity of traffic to a website or webpage from search engines), and ecommerce flow. Here are some valuable Open and Mobile resources regarding web accessibility that I use regularly and would encourage all web content creators to save in their browser bookmarks: How to Meet WCAG (Quick Reference): https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/quickref/ Professional Web Accessibility Auditing Made Easy: https://pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/pwaa/ Digital Accessibility As A Business Practice: https://pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/dabp/ Web Accessibility for Developers: https://pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/wafd/ Understanding Document Accessibility: https://pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/docs/ WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool: https://wave.webaim.org/ W3C Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools: https://www.w3.org/WAI/test-evaluate/tools/selecting/ https://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tools/ WebFX Readability Test Tool: https://www.webfx.com/tools/read-able/ amara.org (caption + subtitle video): https://amara.org/en/
