Template Conversion Process

Case Study

For our example, we will use the default page from the Virginia Industries for the Blind and Vision Impaired (VIB) Web Site. First, let's take a look at the two versions of the page.
  1. Old Design
  2. New Design

Assessing Accessibility

Now that we have an idea of the before and after of the design, we can take a look at the before and after of the accessibility. To this end, we will utilize the Access Valet service, which ties directly to the W3C WCAG. Here are the reports:
  1. Old Page Report
  2. New Page Report

Making the Changes

Let's take a look at the process for this transition by examining each problem area, and learning how to resolve accessibility issues while bringing the design into a compliant standard.
