Website Accessibility Training Day in Chichester 27th Feburary 2023
If you are a web designer and are in West Sussex or Hampshire, this is for you!
Website accessibility (for disabled people) is a vital issue that everyone should be aware of but, unfortunately, most people are not.
They may have heard the term but not really understand what it means and how it affects them and the visitors to their website.
Sadly, in 2022, over 96% of the top 1 million websites failed basic accessibility tests. This demonstrates how serious the problem is and we are dedicated to changing that.
One of the ways in which we do this is through the training and support we provide to other web design agencies, helping them improve their digital accessibility.
I am delighted to announce that our training day has now been rescheduled from last year, at a new venue!
Where is it going to be held?
It will be held at One O Four, The Hornet, Chichester and, having visited it recently, I am just so pleased that it will be there. The facilities are simply excellent!

Who is it for?
This training day is aimed specifically at web designers and web design agencies in West Sussex and Hampshire who want to learn more about digital accessibility.
What is it about?
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to give a TEDxTalk earlier this year on website accessibility, which has now been featured on TED.com. If you want an introduction to the subject, this is an excellent place to start.
Watch my TED Talk on website accessibility for disabled people.
However, this talk was aimed at everyone and was deliberately non-technical.
As a web designer, it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of information out there and it can be quite confusing. This is my area of expertise and I want to help you.
This training day is not about your preferred platform, programming language or style. Instead, I will give you a framework that you can use with your web projects in the future that will work alongside your current practice, whatever that is. I will also demystify the subject and clear up many of the misconceptions that exist.
The day will run as follows:
9.15am - Registration
9.30am - 11am Session 1
Introduction to Website Accessibility
Website Accessibility within the Public Sector and the Private Sector
