Website Accessibility and Accessibility Statements
We are offering a new 2 session online training course “Understanding website accessibility and writing an accessibility statement”
Session 1: Thursday 20th August
Session 2: Tuesday 25th August
The new web accessibility regulations create legal obligations for public sector websites. These include having a website that is as accessible as possible (and that includes any downloadable content) as well as an accessibility statement.
This active, two part, hands-on course helps you to look at your own website from the perspective of a disabled user.
Part one introduces you to the concepts of web accessibility and provides ways of assessing your own website.
Part 2 takes your findings from part one and helps you put them into the framework of a compliant accessibility statement so you can
- begin to assess how compliant you are with accessibility standards
- identify potential barriers (and timelines for fixing)
- provide information to help disabled users mitigate any barriers – for example obtaining information in an alternative format.
This course is an individualised experience with an opportunity to ask questions, get clarification from the trainer and learn from one another. It comes with an accompanying online resource full of useful links and explanations.
Please note that, being an active session, you will need to be confident in moving between open applications – such as watching the trainer’s screen and then switching to your website to test it or moving to an online form to record your findings.
