Here’s a little more about her talk featured in the above video on Accessibility:

With an aging population and possible legislation changes around the corner, it’s more important than ever that we build a more beautiful, accessible web for **all** our users. It’s a responsibility that goes beyond government agencies and 508 compliance. With a little education and creative thinking, accessibility is achievable without changing our tools, our budgets, or our designs.

I’ll be breaking down WCAG 2.0 Level A standards with a focus on easy, approachable ways you can build sites to be more accessible.
