Introduction to web accessibility
The aim of the webinar is to give you an overview of what accessibility is, who it helps and why you should address it. We'll show some examples, but we won't go into technical details.
What will the webinar be about?
- What is accessibility
- What is the state of accessibility in the world and in the Czech Republic
- What disabilities exist
- What barriers can people (not only with disabilities) encounter
- How accessibility is addressed by legislation
- Together we will dispel myths about accessibility
- A little about accessibility rules
What will you learn?
The webinar is absolutely for everyone, whether you are a developer, designer, content creator, designer, CEO or student. All are welcome.
I hope you'll have lots of questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
- From 2025, all e-shops will have to be accessible, or they will be in breach of the law and could face severe penalties.
- Accessibility is usability on steroids.
- Accessibility doesn't just help people with disabilities, it helps everyone.
