Elderly people often have trouble with their vision which often make navigating websites a real hassle. They also tend to have outdated user habits, they are unfamiliar with the latest design patterns or just not used to them.
Once you start to think about then you will see that modern web design has made using websites difficult. Most screens are difficult to read in the daylight, one the screen is dark then it is too bright. If that is not bad enough, the text itself is often too small and menus difficult to navigate. Web accessibility is often quite bad.
Why are the majority of web developers building websites that are accessible only if certain conditions are met? If you are building websites, you need to evaluate and test your accessibility to make sure it is accessible to everyone. This is what web accessibility is here to do.
Doing your own evaluations and testing is a great learning experience. There’s nothing more eye opening than seeing real people with real disabilities attempt to use your website or a product. You will most likely see problems that never really occurred to you.
Our accessibility workshop is highly practical and useful
You will learn all the required tools and knowledge to perform accessibility testing on a semi-professional level. You will also learn about different evaluation techniques and heuristics. Accessibility has strict guidelines set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), that will make learning the basics both easy and essential for your team.
