You will complete several steps for this assignment.
Step 1: You will become familiar with an assessment tool (AChecker) to examine Web accessibility for a couple Web sites. This is a freely available tool that you can learn about by reviewing the tutorial found here.
Step 2: Select two Web sites that are somewhat similar in functionality. Find one that you think is good and one that you think is bad. Whether or not the Web site is good or bad is based upon your own personal perspective.
Step 3: Examine the Web sites regarding your suggestions as to how they might be improved.
Step 4: Create a PowerPoint presentation that includes 1012 slides with voice recording that presents your recommended improvements. Discuss the good and bad factors of each Web site. Discuss how a sample task is supported on each of the Web sites. Describe how the Web site can be redesigned or revised to achieve better results.
The requirements for the presentation are as follows:
- Title slide
- Introduction to the 2 Web sites
- Comparison of the 2 Web sites
- A summary of AChecker’s findings for each site
- Explanation of how to improve the sample task
- Listing of recommended improvements
- Information regarding anticipated localization and globalization factors
- Summary and conclusions
- At least 35 references
Be sure to consider the following:
Screenshots may be used in your slides to support your explanations.
Remember, your presentation must include both the slides and the audio to present the content.
Include a title slide and APA format on citations used in the presentation with a closing references slide. Use proper design regarding elements (fonts, color, images, etc.) on your slides.
Use the Record Slide Show option to present the information on each slide and record your verbal explanations for each item. Please refer to the following for more detailed instructions on recording your voice on a PowerPoint slide:
