Web accessibility is quickly becoming a topic that is unavoidable. Access to the web is becoming a basic human right, but many sites are inaccessible to people with a wide range of disabilities.
Our new course, A Beginner’s Guide to Web Accessibility, teaches you about the different disabilities that must be accounted for, the benefits to all users when your site is more accessible, and how to be proactive when it comes to conforming with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
Whether you’re a designer, developer, project manager or CEO, this course will help you realize that accessibility is worth the time it takes to make improvements, and it’s not much extra effort if added into the workflow of a project.
During the course, Envato Tuts+ instructor John Hartley will get you fully up to speed on web accessibility, what it is, why it matters and what you can do to start making your sites more accessible.
You’ll learn about tools for testing your sites, how to fix common accessibility mistakes, and much more.
At the end of the day, if you make even one site improvement, the Internet will be a better place.
You can take our new course straight away with a free 10-day trial of our monthly subscription. If you decide to continue, it costs just $15 a month, and you’ll get access to hundreds of courses, with new ones added every week.
You can also find items on Envato Market that help make your sites more accessible, such as the WAIM accessibility tool bar, which allows users to magnify specific areas, change the color and weight of text, and more.
