Implement Web Accessibility

A 1-day Course implementing Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG/WAI-ARIA) — ACCESS-02

Accessibility Training Course Overview

This 1-day website accessibility course provides the technical requirements for building accessible websites using HTML and CSS, ie how to:

  • Provide accessible web images, multimedia and text alternatives
  • Provide accessible links and navigation
  • Ensure that textual content is accessible
  • Ensure that colour is used safely
  • Make table navigation and data accessible
  • Make form navigation, data, and data entry accessible

This course follows on directly from the 1-day website accessibility awareness course known as Understanding Website Accessibility — and that course (or equivalent knowledge) is a prerequisite for this one.

Beginners in website accessibility will typically take both courses together in the 2-day package known as Website Accessibility Fundamentals.

A further follow-on course in implementing accessible web applications is under active development and will be available in the near future.
