This workshop complements, and is suggested prior to, the “Strategies for Web Accessibility” workshop being the same day from 1-4pm.
The workshop covered a lot of information I was not aware of. Very informative!
Really helpful – videos and screen reader demo.
Great explanation of the experience of real users – what tools they use and expect.
