Webinar: Transitioning to WCAG 2.1
Has your organisation transitioned to WCAG 2.1?
After almost a decade, the global standard for web accessibility changed in June last year. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 became WCAG 2.1.
With an extended set of requirements to support people with disability and mobile phone users, it was an important step to ensure online inclusion for everyone.
However, the challenge for organisations is in understanding the changes in order to successfully transition to the new standard.
Thankfully, following their highly successful webinar on making digital accessibility part of your DNA, Intopia’s Sarah Pulis and Andrew Arch are back to help you do just that!
Who’ll benefit from this webinar?
- ICT teams
- D&I and HR practitioners interested in digital inclusion
- Anyone involved in digital design and delivery
- People Leaders who want to gain an understanding of accessibility in policy and practice
A must-watch for organisations looking to boost their ICT scores in our Access and Inclusion Index!
What you’ll learn
WCAG 2.1 is an extension of WCAG 2.0. The new requirements can increase the accessibility of your services for users with low vision and cognitive and learning disability, as well as mobile phone users.
In this session, Sarah and Andrew will give you:
- An overview of all new WCAG 2.1 requirements
- A deep dive into the most complex WCAG 2.1 requirements
- Guidance on who in your team is responsible for implementing each requirement
