2014-06-23 12:00 - 13:30 America/Los_Angeles

This month, the UC Berkeley Web Accessibility team will present on “Creating an accessible website with Drupal.”

Drupal users from UC Berkeley may have attended our Webnet presentation on June 10, in which we introduced the UC systemwide accessibility policy, our services, and our new website (http://webaccess.berkeley.edu/). This session will show you how to use Drupal to create a site that is more accessible and usable for everyone.

Topics will include:

  • Themes: Choosing an accessible theme or base theme; theme development for accessibility
  • Content: Things to keep in mind about user-generated content, multimedia, and attached files
  • Top Ten Tips for developers and content creators
  • Tools for evaluating your site

Given enough time and interest, we may also cover:

  • ARIA and Javascript in Drupal
  • The administrator/editor experience
  • How to keep up with the latest advances in accessibility for Drupal
  • Preview of Drupal 8 enhancements

About Berkeley Drupal User's Group meetings:

We are making an effort to select topics that directly benefit UC Berkeley employees using Drupal.

BDUG remains open to the non-UC Berkeley Drupal community. Please join us at our meetings. Please let us know if you are interested in presenting at BDUG.

Discussion format: Meetings will not always be formal presentations. Some meetings will be discussions centered around a predefined topic. Discussions will be initiated by a leader who will briefly present an overview of the topic possibly including demonstrations or supporting materials. The session leaves ample space for organic discussion. Participants are encouraged to:
- respond in these forums with ideas for the present meeting or future meetings
- bring problems encountered, questions and contributions to the meeting
