"Very insightful and informative."  

"A well delivered and well-paced webinar. Liked the polls and colourful examples." 

“I’ve found the sessions useful in bringing the range of accessibility issues to our attention, from website navigation to ensuring that images are meaningful to the visually impaired… I’d say that the training is essential for those responsible for the content of public websites.”
