Free webinar: Learn about digital accessibility at Open University

Alarm clock being held in the air by a hand

The day before the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations (PSBAR) coming up on 23 September 2020, we have a free webinar focused on public sector organisations, and how one in particular has been developing impressive best practice digital accessibility solutions.

In our webinar, HE/Public Sector Update: Excelling in Digital Accessibility at Open University at 1pm on Tuesday 22 September, Kate Lister, Accessibility Manager at The Open University and AbilityNet's Amy Low will explore the benefits of embedding and evaluating accessibility throughout learning and teaching.

Registrants will also learn about how the Government Digital Service (GDS) will be monitoring compliance with the PSBAR, and will receive a sneak preview of a module level accessibility badging scheme that AbilityNet has been developing with McNaught Consulting.

If you work in the public sector, particularly in a higher or further education setting, this webinar is likely to be really useful to help you with your questions about accessibility.

Remember, from 23 September 2020: 

  • All existing websites and updated internal sites must be accessible
  • Videos and audio published after this date must be accessible
  • Accessibility statements need to have been updated with the relevant legal wording included
  • Focus on the basics – most common issues are related to keyboard navigation and colour contrast
  • As digital learning is now critical, ensure accessibility is considered at all opportunities
