Did you know that 1 in 5 of your customers have accessibility needs?
There are ethical, economic, and legal reasons why your websites and digital products should work for everyone. But ultimately it's about providing a superior experience to all customers alike.
Our interactive, expert-led, classroom-based web accessibility training gives you practical advice on how to cater to accessibility needs and start establishing a culture of digital inclusion within your organisation.
How users with accessibility needs use computers
You'll learn about the various types of user needs that affect web and computer use, the challenges that they face, and the types of software and hardware people use to perform online tasks.
What the law says about digital access
Understand how the law on disability affects your organisation, and how to make sure that you provide an inclusive experience for your visitors.
How to create inclusive digital content
Images, video, tables, and interactive content – we'll show you how to make all your digital content more inclusive.
How to use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
It's really overwhelming but, once you get confident and comfortable with using WCAG, it can become an indispensable tool for you.
How to check your content
Once we've worked through the basics, we'll show you how to apply what you've learned through some hands-on testing.
