Approximately 20% of the population has a disability that might prevent them from accessing a website or use an application - 71% of those users immediately leave websites that aren’t accessible. If you make sure to create accessible websites and apps, you’re not just helping users with disabilities, you also help all other users navigate your content easier. Attend this seminar to get an introduction to accessibility; what it means and how to do it right, and meet some of the people who rely on websites being accessible. With the knowledge you gain, you should be able to improve the user experience for all users and help make the web a better place.
