Event details

In 2021, the Centre For Accessibility Australia undertook a project to audit and improve the accessibility of five WA universities: Edith Cowan University, Curtin University, Murdoch University, The University of Notre Dame Australia and The University of Western Australia. This workshop discusses the general findings of the project and upskills ICT, communications and marketing staff in the higher education sector on how they can make their content more accessible.

Topics to cover:

  • How people with disability access your content: includes a hands-on practical exercise of using a screen reader
  • The W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 overview: a guide to the definitive world standard in digital access
  • WCAG: a role-based approach: explore how the standard relates to different organisational roles
  • Higher Education for All report: a discussion into the key issues found and how to address them
  • Finding and addressing issues: key guidance on how to check your content and a practical exercise on how to fix issues as they appear
  • The future: with two new versions of WCAG on the horizon and other access developments, this final session will look at what’s coming and how to prepare.
