Digital Accessibility Training

Digital Accessibility TrainingWe believe that everyone has a right to be able to access the online world. We all rely on the internet for services, work, education and so on. 

Poorly designed websites, documents and social media create barriers for many disabled people.

We offer two workshops that can help organisations to make their digital content accessible and inclusive. 

Accessible Online Meetings and Events

This two-hour workshop will help you make your online meetings, presentations and events inclusive, accessible and enjoyable for all. 

During this practical session we will use demonstration, exercises and group work to cover: 

  • Common barriers to inclusion and participation 
  • Preparing for your event – building in accessibility from the start 
  • Online meeting platforms – some pros and cons of different systems and how to use accessibility features 
  • Take-away top tips for inclusive meetings and events
