Brief description:

This course covers all of the basics from how, why and when testing should be used through to executing a test and acting on the results.

It's fun, it's interactive, you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with.

A major element of the day is practical:

  • You will be introduced to a screen reader user who will demonstrate how they use this adaptive technology, and will walk through several sites (including yours if you wish)
  • You will practice by analysing several sites/pages for basic accessibility

Is it for you?

If you are responsible for a website and want to get the best out of it whilst ensuring you are meeting your legal and corporate social responsibility requirements then – this is for you.
