Whether you need to comply with the European digital accessibility act, or simply keep your applications accessible: accessibility can be overwhelming.
Especially if your team sees it as a list of requirements, without knowing what their purpose is. But with the right training it gets easier. It becomes second nature. So make sure the whole team knows exactly what accessibility means, who it is for, and what the legal requirements are.
In this tailored training, your team learns all that, plus a lot of practical information on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), how to design and implement content that complies with the guidelines, and how to evaluate your own work.
Your team can be complete beginners or experts at accessibility. We tailor the training program to the participants’ roles and competencies.

This was probably the best accessibility training that I have participated in. The subject was presented very clearly and we noticed that taking accessibility into account is not that difficult after all.

Make accessibility part of your team’s life and work
Make accessibility an internal competence
Accessibility is not something you apply at the end. Even though you may sometimes ask an external specialist for an evaluation, it should be part of every developer’s and designer’s skill set.
Learn to apply accessibility
Understand what accessibility is, why you need it, and how it relates to your particular environment. What are the legal requirements and how do you interpret the WCAG requirements?
Save by doing the evaluation yourself
When you have learned at least the basics of why and how to make an accessibility evaluation, you can start evaluating your own work. You don’t need constant reviews by an external experts. You can easily apply accessibility techniques at all stages of design and development.
Training tailored to your needs
Regardless of your team’s current accessibility knowledge and skill level, we modify the training based on your needs. We can start with the basics, or at an expert level.
