On September 6th and 7th, Ephox will speak at the FCC Accessibility and Innovation Initiative's "Developing with Accessibility" event (#DevAcc) at the the FCC headquarters in Washington, DC. The mission of the FCC's Accessibility and Innovation Initiative is to promote collaborative problem-solving among stakeholders to ensure that people with disabilities reap the full benefits of communications technology. The September event is designed to spur increased collaboration on accessibility solutions among developers from industry, consumer, and government sectors. One of the key objectives is to promote the concept and practice of developing applications within accepted accessibility guidelines, thereby maximizing their usability for everyone, including people with disabilities.
Tom Smith, Ephox VP of Sales and Business Development and Michael Fromin, Director of Client Services, will speak at the event about integrating accessibility web authoring tools to achieve compliance more quickly. In this session, they will explain how companies can integrate online rich text editor tools, like Ephox EditLive, into web content management systems and applications, so end users can easily create content that is accessible and compliant with Section 508 and W3C’s WCAG Guidelines.
