“Vive la WCAG revolution!” An associate from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) in South Australia said this following our recent presentation of W3C Easy Checks – A First Review of Web Accessibility.
On February 26 we had over 250 government representatives join us at Adelaide Convention Centre interested in enhancing their knowledge of accessibility. Aimed at driving awareness, the session was a great first step for many people in SA trying to get their head around website accessibility.
Organised as a W3C Member initiative, with tremendous support from DPC SA, the event focused on Easy Checks – simple steps that can be taken to identify basic website accessibility issues. Designed to be quick and easy, rather than definitive, almost 90% of post-event survey respondents agreed or strongly agreed the Easy Checks are useful for a first review of accessibility.
Coming soon to other states, we look forward to driving accessibility awareness even further! Follow our progress on Twitter.
