Work with Glenda
Need to improve your websiteâ€™s accessibility?

She is well-versed in the internationally-recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 and is rapidly absorbing the changes that come with the newly released 2.0 version. Glenda is also familiar with the United States legislation Section 508 that, in part, requires specified categories of websites to be accessible to people with disabilities.
Her clients have included:
- Human Resources Development Canada
- Government of British Columbia
- Ministry of Advanced Education
