Intro to Accessibility Testing

The latest WebAIM study found that 97.8 percent of the world’s top 1 million websites have accessibility issues. Accessibility is clearly something we need to start focusing on more - but it’s also complex. Where do you start? How do you start? So in this friendly, supportive workshop, Beverley will share resources and give you a broken website and the opportunity to practise doing an accessibility audit. Issues will range from basic to advanced, so there is something for everyone, regardless of your experience level or background!

This is a workshop, so PLEASE BRING YOUR LAPTOP!
