Intro to Accessibility Testing Workshop
-----------------------
In this interactive workshop, Beverley will give an introduction to accessibility and share some resources. You’ll then have the opportunity to go through a website they created and broke, and have a go at finding the accessibility problems in it.

Issues will range from basic to advanced, so there is something for everyone, regardless of your experience level! This workshop will also involve elements of content, design and code, so it isn’t just for developers!

Please bring your laptops for the exercise, and headphones if you’d like to have a go at using a screen reader. Also, please bring questions! It’ll be a friendly, supportive environment, and there’s no such thing as ‘stupid questions’ :)
