FEB 23, 2023 WEBINAR
"Accessibility from a technology perspective 1 - Feb 23, 2023 Webinar" RECORDING
This two-part webinar series was sponsored by the Advanced Traveller Information Technical Committee of ITS Canada.
This webinar was moderated by co-chairs Judy Yu, Associated Engineering and Omar Choudhry, City of Ottawa.
Accessibility is being increasingly recognized as a complex, yet vitally important pursuit. As transportation professionals, we are implementing systems that have wide-ranging benefit. But is that benefit limited to a narrower, “able”, audience (yes, this is a rhetorical question!)? While many folks might be familiar with some base level accessibility requirements (e.g. WCAG), this two-part webinar series will explore at a much deeper level how you can help ensure that the systems you are procuring, designing, and building are accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
This first webinar focused on expanding participants’ awareness.
