Do you create content for a website or digital product? Do you contribute documents, text, or images that end up on a website or digital product? Regardless of your role in government, you’re a content creator.

We all communicate with each other and the public in the course of our duties. And yet, accessibility is often viewed through the lens of software development or visual design. This presentation focuses on what we can all do to design content that is accessible to everyone.
