If you're a government publisher, you've probably heard about Section 508 accessibility requirements for all government documents.
But accessibility isn't just for government documents.
Accessibility is a wise strategy for ALL publishers because the same techniques that aid audiences with disabilities also make it easier to convert your material to EPUB, HTML, and other digital technologies, as well as help search engines find and index your material.
Yahoo. Google. Bing.

Extended Lab Time
PubCom's hands-on computer classes include self-paced practice time after class, from 4 - 5pm. Although our instructors are available for assistance, the extended lab period is intended to give you a chance to practice what was covered in class, delve into additional topics, and hone your skills in the software.
Note: Due to its format, the 508 Accessibility Workshop does not have extended lab time, but there's plenty of hands-on time during the workshop itself.
