Day 1: Full Day Seminar

Melbourne: Monday 6th February, Victoria University, City Convention Centre

AccessibilityOz founder Gian Wild presents the steps your organisation should consider undertaking to meet next year’s Government mandate and draws on 13 years of experience in accessibility to address topics including the differences between WCAG1 and WCAG2 standards, PDFs in the context of accessibility and updates to the DDA: Web Advisory Notes.

Attendees will get both an overview of the direction of accessibility and how it impacts their organisation as well as specific trends observed in sites undertaking compliance audits.

Hear from a panel of Government representatives who have undertaken the process to become WCAG2 compliant and how their organisations addressed the issues surrounding accessibility.
