Web Accessibility: Design-for-all Workshop
A tendency to focus on the graphical web browser, and also visual impairment, overlooks the variety of differing physical and cognitive abilities, and equipment and techniques that are available to support these. The "Design for All" principle, which underpins this workshop, encourages designers to develop a single accessible web site that does not impose barriers to usage.
This workshop is aimed at anyone who produces web pages and wishes to understand and explore the principles and practice of producing accessible content.
Topics will include:
- The nature of physical and cognitive abilities
- Legal obligations: DDA and SENDA
- Guidelines and best practice: The international Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
- Navigation and accessibility: principles and techniques
- Testing and evaluating web pages
- Demonstration of a screen reader
- Accessibility issues for multimedia and document formats.
The cost of the workshop is £ 125 for participants from UK Higher and Further Education.
