Have you ever thought...
Is your website truly accessible for all your audiences? How can a blind person find their way to your theatre's programme? Are your trailer videos subtitled for people living with hearing disabilities? Are the colours used on your website clear enough for colourblind people?
Since the European Web Accessibility Directive (in effect since the end of 2016), the websites and apps of public sector bodies must meet specific technical accessibility standards.ETC is offering a webinar on the fundamentals of web accessibility to help you evaluate the accessibility of your current website, the possible needs of your audience and potential that more accessibility features could unfold. Speaker Léonie Watson (Tetralogical, UK) will cover the following questions before entering in a Q&A session and discussion with the participants:
- What is accessibility?
- Who does accessibility benefit?
- How is accessibility measured?
- How is accessibility tested?
- Who is responsible for accessibility?
When: 1 March 2023 at 15:00-16:30 (CET)
With: Léonie Watson, Director at TetraLogical
For whom: for ETC members only. Primarily for communication and marketing staff, especially those responsible for the online presence of your theatre (website, social media)
