You will learn both the techniques of accessible website design and an entire ‘framework for thinking about the subject’. It will equip you with the skills to understand, identify and fix issues any accessibility issues you come across. Watch the free videos to get a taste of what is on the course.

Accessible Web Design In Practice

This course is suitable for:

Beginners and experienced web developers. Both will get a lot out of this course.

It is suitable for people who work in the public sector or private sector, e.g., Local councils, education, the voluntary sector organisations, charities and corporates. If you would like to create standards-compliant accessible web pages this is the course for you.

The course delivers both the required background understanding and practical techniques required to create an accessible website.

The training is aimed at helping publishers manage their web content in a more accessible, efficient and flexible manner. Accessible web design is about more than learning individual techniques, although you learn the techniques as well. Accessible web design is about understanding how to manage and publish web content in the most flexible way – cutting down the work web publishers have to do to reach their widest possible audience.

The practical hands-on aspects of the course are ‘topic’ based, for example,

  • Making pages accessible for people with particular impairments.
  • The legislative framework. Equality Act 2010 and website accessibility
  • Introduction to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, i.e., WCAG 2.
  • Accessible Web Scripting and issues with ‘Web 2’ applications.
  • How to make photographs and illustrations accessible.
  • How to make videos and multimedia presentations accessible
  • How to make data tables accessible.
  • How to make the links within your pages accessible.
  • Colour and contrast issues.
  • How do you make your PDFs accessible.
  • How to make your forms accessible.
