Digital Accessibility (DI007)

When building a shop, it’s important to make sure facilities like toilets and parking are fully accessible. When you build a website or create digital assets, you’ll have similar considerations. Closed captions on videos for deaf people, and keyboard-navigable websites for those that can’t physically use a mouse are just 2 examples.

Digital accessibility is all about making sure your website and online content can be easily used by as many people as possible.

In many countries, legislation is in place to protect people’s rights by ensuring organizations adhere to standards relating to digital accessibility. But the benefits of this approach go way beyond staying on the right side of the law. This course will help you explore them.

• Define digital accessibility and the barriers faced by users
• Describe the benefits of ensuring your digital content is accessible
