Creating Accessible Digital Humanities Projects

Melissa Green, University of Alabama

We employ digital methods to bring scholarship and scholarly communities to life. However, by failing to ensure our Digital Humanities projects are accessible to users with disabilities, we erect barriers to engagement and undermine the success of our efforts. This session provides a brief introduction to designing accessible Digital Humanities projects: the importance of accessible design and high-impact practices scholars and practitioners can apply to create accessible documents, images, audio, video, and web content.
