Accessibility Makeover of Your Documents, Images, and Video

Be inspired to make your self-created documents, graphics, and videos accessible to all learners. The POUR model from the W3C will be used as a guide you can use for creating your own accessible educational materials. The four principles of POUR: Perceivable means that learners can see and hear the content presented in a material; Operable means that learners can interact with the content with a variety of tools; Understandable means that learners can understand the content and enjoy a predictable experience; and Robust means that the content works well with current and future technologies. The AEM Center tool, Designing for Accessibility with POUR, which includes tutorials for specific skills related to each principle, will be used as a resource. Common examples of teacher-created materials will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR-aligned accessible versions. Bring a material of your own to practice an accessibility makeover!
