About the course

Web accessibility enables people with disabilities to perceive, understand, navigate, interact with, and contribute to the web. It is also a characteristic of a good website and with the proper knowledge and tools, is easy to implement. Most importantly, everyone - regardless of ability - can benefit from it.

This course will help you understand web accessibility and the techniques to make your web content accessible and information about WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) and ways to test for and achieve level AA compliance within your websites.

Let us help you learn about web accessibility in a friendly environment where questions and observations are most welcome.
