Accessibility Bootcamp- Web and Mobile accessibility
Accessibility laws have undergone a major upgrade this year with the Section 508 Refresh in the United States and the European Accessibility Act coming into full effect in certain European countries later in 2018. The W3C has also updated its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). Now is the time to master accessibility for your website or mobile app strategy!
Understanding Accessibility is as important as ever not just to avoid legal compliance but also to include all your users and potentially improve the usability and SEO of your product as well. Accessibility
In this online workshop, you will learn how to build accessibility into your UX strategy from the start.
Topics covered in this online training:
