Adi Latif, Accessibility Consultant, AbilityNet, IAAP Certified Professional in Web Accessibility (pronouns: he, him, his) will be delivering this workshop on why making your website digitally accessible is essential for your organisation.
If you haven’t considered digital accessibility then disabled people will be struggling to use your website or app. Disabled people make up 20% of the population.
In this illuminating and entertaining session Adi Latif will take you on a journey where you will experience what websites and apps are like from a disabled person’s perspective. The world of digital accessibility will be demystified 1 slide at a time and you will leave with a profound feeling of an hour well spent.
The learning will include:
- A profound understanding of why making digital product and services accessible is great for your business and society as a whole
- First-hand experience of seeing a disabled person navigate a good and a bad digital experience
- Understanding the business case for accessibility and inclusive design
- Top tips on how to get started
There will be an opportunity for a Q&A session.
