Renowned for its comprehensive approach to technical accessibility and inclusive design, this highly popular course will benefit anyone involved in the design, development or maintenance of websites.

You’ll learn how to test for accessibility issues within a website or web application and practical techniques to resolve them. We’ll demonstrate design and code solutions you can implement to achieve WCAG 2.0 Level AA conformance, as well as usability and accessibility best practices gathered through our own research and user testing across various disability groups.
