About the Webinar:
This webinar will consider the ways in which people vary and the implications for standards development. It will discuss the variety and variability of attributes of human beings, and introduce the subject of human factors. It will also provide an overview of the new Draft International Standard (DIS) of the ISO/IEC document: Guide 71, Guide for addressing accessibility in standards. The purpose of the Guide is to assist standards developers in addressing accessibility in standards that focus, whether directly or indirectly, on any type of system that people use. The Guide provides guidance for writing accessibility requirements and recommendations that would be appropriate for a specific standard. Finally, the Guide identifies issues to consider in support of accessibility of the standards development process itself.
