Upcoming Web Accessibility and Autism Related Webinars

Accessibility never sits still and in the coming months we will be hosting two free webinars to share the latest news from the sector. Our first webinar in March will focus on 'What's new in WCAG 2.1' and will look at the new success criteria from the recent WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.1 release.

Then in April we'll be focussing on autism and accessibility - looking at the design challenges but also the solutions for people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Make sure you register to secure your place, even if unable to attend, as you'll receive details about when recordings will be made available to watch.
