Accessibility Thinking for Publishers
Having an accessible website is vital to allow your content to be seen and engaged with by anyone who wants it. It can be daunting, but there are inroads you can make at whatever stage your website is at, and whatever your technical acumen. This webinar will detail quick and easy wins to improve the accessibility of your website, with no or minimal code. This can include ensuring all images have alt-tags, menus and headers are set up appropriately, and more! We'll also go into general accessibility concepts that might take a little more work, but be very effective in the long run. Participants will come away with concrete next steps to test and improve their organization’s site.
