About the presentations

Mobile & Accessibility

We’ve been making web sites accessible for many years now, but how do you make sure that your mobile web site is responsive and accessible? Gian Wild will cover the important accessibility issues raised when viewing a site on a mobile device – and not all of them are covered in WCAG2.

Removing Mobile Barriers

BrowseAloud provides worldwide leadership in online reading support for websites. More than 7,000 websites are using BrowseAloud products to reach a much wider audience than ever before, comply with legal obligations and gain a return on investment. During his presentation, David Robinson will highlight the challenges to digital inclusion, what barriers exist on the mobile web and how they can be broken down. He will explore how this cutting edge solution can offer help for Society’s most vulnerable groups by empowering them to both communicate with greater freedom and access online services independently.

  1. Hi,
    Please could you advise if there is a cost involved in attending the presentations.
    Also, are the topics covered in Session 1 the same as Session 2?
    Thanks,
    Fiona
