DIY Accessibility Lunch ‘n’ Learn: Intro to Cognitive Accessibility

July 6, 2020

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors on Thursday, July 30, for a presentation by accessibility ambassador Amy Drayer from University Libraries. 

When discussing digital accessibility, physical disabilities like visual impairments and limited mobility are well documented. However, cognitive accessibility (often shortened to COGA), for those with cognitive or learning disabilities, is a large part of accessibility that experts are now researching in order to understand how we can provide better online experiences.

In this presentation, Amy will give an introduction to the existing standards for cognitive accessibility.
