Understanding accessibility evaluations and testing results

Analyse your data and identify where you need to focus your attention for accessibility

Why you should attend

Understanding whether your website, apps or digital services are accessible and meet accessibility regulations is important. Undertaking or commissioning an accessibility audit can be a daunting task if you have limited knowledge of tests that will be undertaken, the standards you will be measured against and the evaluation you will receive. And once you’ve received the results you need to know how to prioritise the work to remediate issues.

In this course we will take you through the principles and methods used to measure accessibility compliance to the Web Content Accessibility Standards. We will look at some tools that can be used for automated checks and other approaches for validating accessibility conformance. 

Who will benefit from this training?

This course is aimed at anyone creating, managing or procuring digital content or systems. It will also be of value as an introductory session for developers, testers and content creators looking to develop further accessibility skills. 

  • Product owners / managers in development environments
  • Developers 
  • Testers

May also be of interest to:

  • Designers
  • Content creators
  • Managers (at an organisational level) 

Level of training: Suitable for all levels of knowledge. While not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that prospective attendees of this session also attend the session “How to begin your own accessibility testing”  if you have no prior knowledge of accessibility testing.

"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.”
