Digital Accessibility - benefits for all of us
The EU regulation and national laws in Europe forces all public organizations to present digital information in an accessible way. This goes for both new material and next year also for earlier published material. It is not required for private organizations and individuals to produce their digital information in an accessible mode - but - there are several opportunities and benefits if even small businesses learns how to do it.
In Sweden WAMDIA Pilot course was launched 5th of June 2019 and officially ended in 31st of August 2019. With 55 individuals signed up for the pilot training and 34 managing to get the diplomas we are very happy for the result achieved and also for the feedback given by learners.
The Multiplier Event took place in Gävle, Sweden, on the 23d of August 2019 and gathered 30 participants to a seminar and discussion with focus on Accessibility to Digital Information. Among speakers we could listen to and discuss with Per Rosqvist and Christina ¨Kina¨ Edin.
Per, blind from birth, experienced in testing websites and social media posts gave some very useful tips on how to plan and maintain digital information in order to make it more accessible.
Kina, specialized in Universal Design, gave all participants some aha-moments in the change of mindset to always think in terms of accessibility for all either in the digital world or the real world.
