Digital Accessibility

Digital accessibility refers to the practice of making digital content and technology usable by everybody.

This includes designing websites, software, and other digital products to be compatible with assistive technology, such as screen readers for visually impaired users or keyboard-only navigation for users with mobility impairments. Digital accessibility also involves providing alternative text for images, clear navigation, and consistent layouts. The goal is to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, has equal access to digital information and resources.

The main aim of this course is to show what digital accessibility means in practice. We’ll be focussing on the main tools we use to make resources for our students and looking at simple steps we can take to make them accessible.
