Who will maintain the site once it has been built?

If it’s our organization, how do we ensure new content meets accessibility standards?

Quick Tip: dom-iris.si/images/prilagoditve-komunikacija1_en.gifUse ALT tags on images

<imgsrc=“georgewashington.png alt=“George Washington 1789 - 1797” />

<h1>George Washington</h1>

<a href=“/”><img src=“nten-logo.png alt=“Home – NTEN.org” /></a>

Use text when you can instead of embedding it in an image.
