How the W3C's Web Accessibility initiative applies to Drupal and the challenge to help make this CMS an example of how a content framework can help build a more accessible Web.

The Future of Accessible Content is going to be ATAG 2.0. A standard that both ensures that the editing interface is accessible as well as that there are measures to see that content that is produced with it is accessible. Although Drupal 8 isn't out, and ATAG 2.0 is still in draft, looking ahead it is important to anticipate what impact this will have for government sites. We can highlight enhancements to the admin side of Drupal 8, talk about the current Web Experience Toolkit Drupal implementation and what it has already adopted from Drupal 8's approach.

If you're up for it, we'll take an interactive approach to this session. While not necessary to attend, bring your laptop with a modern web browser installed so you can take part in the hands-on experience part of the session.
