Web content needs to be useful and usable. We know this. But part of our role as content strategists is to make sure that it’s usable to every user. Good accessibility is not a restriction for good content, it's a vital part of it.
We need to make sure that there are plans in place for those users who struggle to see, hear, concentrate or move around the websites we shape. We must be aware of their situations, and implement failsafe solutions. We should lead by example, and empower disabled users to be privy to the high quality user experiences we all evangelise.
We’ll discuss what the law says about accessibility, how certain content affects certain disabled users and how to deal with it in the early stages of content planning.
What you'll learn:
1. How to plan for creating and maintaining accessible content.
2. What the law says about accessibility.
3. How disabled users perceive certain content.
