After a lot of requests to run one in Wellington, the Department of Internal Affairs is holding a free workshop on web accessibility for content authors on 18 July 2017.
Space is limited, so please register below if you plan to attend. If you do register for the event, but then can't make it, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your place to someone else.
Web accessibility for content authors
Facilitator: Katherine Barcham, Content Designer, Department of Internal Affairs
Note: This workshop is open to central and local government employees.
Learn about common web content accessibility problems, whom they affect and how, and get some practical ways to identify and fix them. Everyone who uses your site will benefit from your new insights.
You’ll learn, among other things, about:
- semantic structure
- link text
- image text alternatives
- video captions and transcripts
Bring a laptop if you want a chance to apply what you learn. It will save time if you’ve already got Chrome installed with the Web Developer extension.
When and where
Date: Tuesday 18 July 2017
Time: 10:00am – 12:30pm
Place: Poutama Ruma, Archives NZ, Mulgrave St.
