Denise George is an ITS Accessibility Hero.

December 4, 2018

Denise made a significant difference in the accessibility of the MCDB website and worked to make sure changes were implemented by September 1. Some of the changes she made included changing the Undergraduate and Graduate Handbooks from PDFs to HTML, a process which included converting the handbooks from PDFs to editable PDFs, and then copying the information to Drupal Book pages and formatting them correctly. According to Denise, “I just wanted to make sure that nobody lost out on information simply because they couldn’t use their screen-readers on our website. Some people think that it’s only blind people that need help with websites–which is still super-important—but people with Dyslexia also can benefit from these accessibility efforts and they deserve their best chance at success, too.”
