Regarding:" What is the focus of your position? Technical? Development? Instructional? Digital materials? Procurement? All of the above?"
Likely all of the above.
Regarding "How this will be funded?"
The Accessibility Architect role is still being designed but was approved to be centrally funded and will be living in a group of User Experience Designers who bill. We consider accessibility of new development a baseline cost of creating something new.
Campus accessible user experience and content strategy training as well as small group consulting around legacy content remediation (focus on raising capacity) will likely be the primary work of this centrally funded person and offered free to campus using internal expertise and external expertise brought in with a small centrally funded training budget.
It's great to be sharing these ideas and seeing what everyone is doing or thinking of doing.
“Zero accessibility errors shouldn't be your goal. Effective communication and equal access should be your goal."
