In this course we provide you with a broad overview about what web accessibility is, we explain more about the guidelines and teach you how to implement them in your work. You will get plenty of tips and tricks that you can directly put into practice!
Whether you are blind, deaf, not able to use a mouse, somewhat older, on a train or just chilling in the sun, we all need a website that is accessible to all of us on all of our devices.
The A11Y Collective is all about making an impact. And you as a designer, developer, content creator, product owner or project manager can make that impact when it comes to web accessibility. Even though we all have our own expertise and skills, the power to make an impact is something we all have in common.
Are you ready to do so? Then enroll in this course!
