[Workshop] Web Accessibility: The Web is for All - but is it really...?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

When we see “www” we recognise it as the "world wide web," but for many users with disabilities it's more like the "wild wild west." We all have the right to inclusive and delightful digital experiences. Accessibility is what makes these experiences open to all.

But …

  • What is web accessibility (a11y)?
  • Who benefits from accessibility?
  • What are some common accessibility barriers?
  • And how do we test for accessibility?
In this workshop, we will be discussing these topics followed by a hands-on group exercise on testing websites for common accessibility issues. Register your place at the link below.
