Web Accessibility Training

If a website is inaccessible to persons with a disability such as those with visual impairment, it may be a kind of disability discrimination under the Disability Discrimination Ordinance. This training by Information Technology Services aims to give users an overview of the concept of web accessibility and the essential elements in designing barrier-free, accessible websites for all people including those with visual impairment or have certain movement limitations.

The following topics will be covered in the seminar:

  • How people with disabilities use the web
  • W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme organised by the Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC)
  • Practical techniques for making web accessibility designs and webpages, e.g. bulk email submission and website development using WIX
  • Benefits to organisations

No web design/editing skill is required for attending this seminar. All colleagues and students are welcome to join the training.
