What you'll learn on the web accessibility course

Accessibility is key to make sure your digital products support the needs of disabled web users. This 1 day course enables you to understand real-world as well as formal accessibility requirements, in order to create and implement an accessibility plan for your website.

The web accessibility course topics are:

  • Identifying different user groups
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • Screen reader & screen magnifier assistive technologies
  • Implementing accessible web design
  • Making forms, tables, complex images, flash, video and audio
  • Devising and implementing accessibility testing
  • Creating an accessibility action plan

Who is the web accessibility course for?

This course is particularly suitable if you are:

  • Working as a content manager, front-end developer or project manager and you want to learn how to make your site more accessible
  • Looking for a comprehensive overview of the principles of accessibility

Some very basic HTML coding is included in the afternoon session but you don't need any previous experience in this area.
