FM Academy, a collaboration of leading FileMaker development and training companies, is proud to announce the final bonus webinar in the 12 Days of FileMaker 12 series. Each Tuesday and Thursday for the past 7 weeks the Academy has hosted a 60-minute webinar on a new feature of the FileMaker 12 product line.


This week features:

TUESDAY, May 29, 2pm EDT

Webinar 15: Accessibility Section 508. FileMaker Pro 12 adds new accessibility features that make it much easier for the blind and visually impaired to use FileMaker Pro.  Our FileMaker Pro solutions often show us how to use them.  New tools in FileMaker Pro 12 allow developers to make your applications “show” blind and visually impaired users how to use through screen readers. Whether you’re using FileMaker Pro to build an application for use in schools, businesses or distributing as a standalone application, learn how to leverage the screen reading services built into today’s modern operating systems such as OS X, Windows and iOS. Topics include overview of accessibility technology, how to add accessibility text to layout objects in FileMaker Pro 12, general guidelines for writing accessibility hints, how to test accessibility text in FileMaker Pro 12.


Chad Sager is the presenter. His formal education was in the fine arts in Milwaukee where he received his BFA as a painting major.  He moved back to his hometown of Houston to work as a preparator at an art gallery and practice as an artist. His interest in technology took shape using FileMaker Pro to build an inventory and invoicing application for the gallery. A grant from the Dallas Museum of Art led him to Philadelphia (in a roundabout way), where he began working for IT Solutions in 2006.  Chad has developed applications in multiple technologies, including iOS, SQL Server and .NET, and of course FileMaker Pro; where he has built and supported one of the largest FileMaker applications  at IT Solutions over the last three years. Among Chad’s accomplishments since joining IT Solutions, a Platinum level member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, are certifications in FileMaker versions 8 through 11, and SQL Server 2008 Developer.
