Event description

Web Accessibility Techniques and Testing

*Please note: our workshop date has changed due to public holidays in Victoria in early November. 

Renowned for its comprehensive approach to technical accessibility and inclusive design principles, this highly popular course will benefit anyone involved in the design, development or maintenance of websites.

You’ll learn how to test for accessibility issues within a website or web application and practical techniques to resolve them. We’ll demonstrate design and code solutions you can implement to achieve WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, as well as usability and accessibility best practices gathered through our own research and user testing across various disability groups.

Course Content

Designed for maximum engagement and flexible delivery, learning exercises and examples are provided and questions encouraged in this lecture-style presentation. Those with a basic working knowledge of HTML and CSS will gain the most from this course.
