GWC lunchtime session: Got accessibility questions?

An accessible website can be used by everyone because it has no barriers. Making your site accessible means a truly good user experience for everyone. Part of the aim for Govt.nz is to make the site as inclusive as possible and building accessibility into all their processes is how they are attempting to do that.

What

At this lunchtime session, Katherine Barcham (Advisor Digital Engagement) and Meg Howie (Govt.nz Web and Service Designer) will demonstrate some basic tests anyone can use to check a website’s accessibility. They’ll talk about some of the accessibility challenges the team has on www.Govt.nz and discuss how they’ve worked to resolve them. They will also talk about how the Govt.nz team embed accessibility into their design, development and content processes.

    Hi,
    thank you very much for organising this session.
    My name is Nicolas Oyanedel, I am a UX consultant for Solnet.
    Just double checking that is on 27 of October and not 27 of November.
    The things is I’ve just registered myself and 2 other colleagues for the event, but on the registration form, the scheduled address is November when the information on this post said is in October.
    Thanks for your time,
    Cheers,
    Nicolas

    Hi Nicolas – the event is on October 27. The Eventbrite default allows for a 1-month sales period for tickets so the November date that you saw was that. I’ve adjusted the date so that the ‘sales’ for this event close on the day of the seminar to avoid confusion. Thanks for pointing this out.
