I recently ran a workshop titled ‘Escaping the Accessibility Island’ for approximately 40 people at the office of the City of Fremantle. The workshop was designed to support the City of Fremantle as it continues to update its web presence and the accessibility of public-facing ICT infrastructure by incorporating digital accessibility techniques across different organisational roles.
The workshop included a hands-on practical exercise of using a screen reader, an overview of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and how it applied across a variety of roles including policy officers, ICT professionals, content producers, marketing staff and communication specialists. The workshop also provided some insights into how to perform visual checks on web content and use an automated tool.
While the workshop provided valuable information in how staff can incorporate accessibility into their work practices, there was also a lot of fun had by all as the practical aspects of digital accessibility were explored. I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone at the City of Fremantle for the opportunity to provide you with accessibility training.
If you would like to have a digital access training workshop run for your organisation, you’re more than welcome to get in touch. All the details can be found on the hollier.info Contacts page.
