Web Accessibility: What it is, and why it's important, with Graham Armfield.
Anyone who has a website needs to be aware of web accessibility these days. Most websites are difficult to use for some people with disabilities or impairments, and the issues found often affect the elderly too. Accessible websites reach more people, and accessibility is also a legal requirement.
This presentation looks at what web accessibility means and why it's important. Graham will demonstrate some easy tests to check the accessibility of your own website, and some best practices to keep in mind when you're writing content for your website.
Afterwards there will be the usual opportunity for questions, for serious discussion, or light-hearted chat, depending on your mood and inclination.
Parking is available in the Tunsgate Multi Storey right next door to the Keep, or the Sydenham Road Multi Storey about 250 yards away, but be aware that some roads in the area are one-way streets, so check your directions carefully!
