Event: Web Accessibility for Higher Education – are you meeting your obligations?
Are you responsible for web content in a Higher Education environment? Are you confident that you are meeting your regulatory obligations for accessible website design and content?
With a decade of experience working in the higher education sector, we have produced a lot of websites. As a publicly funded body, any websites your organisation produce must adhere to WCAG AA standards. We’ve also seen many times how websites that were designed and developed to meet these standards, then fail to remain that way due to inaccessible content that is later added.
Meeting accessibility regulations shouldn’t just be a tick box exercise though. Creating an inclusive digital presence that leaves no one behind is something that benefits us all. By harnessing the power of inclusive online experiences you can create enhanced user engagement, broaden your audience reach and demonstrate you understand and care about the needs of your target audience.
