Accessibility audit training

Understand how to conduct audit testing of your website’s accessibility. Creating actionable steps and site fixes for internal content editors, designers, and developers.

An essential part of digital accessibility is understanding how to audit your own internal sites. This will allow you to provide accurate feedback to your organisation’s design, development, and content teams. In turn, creating an accessible environment for your site users.

This training course provides guidance on how to test and assess all areas of accessibility on the web.

Focusing on the knowledge required to effectively assess basic aspects of your organisation’s online built environment. This will allow you to bring this skill in-house and streamline your accessibility process. Enabling you to create an actionable roadmap of required changes, based on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 standards.

Please be aware that this is by no way a replacement for a full user test. Your users are the key holders to your success. We can arrange a full user test from a team who have a range of disabilities, allowing for you to gain a stamp of approval – an accreditation from Shaw Trust Accessibility Services.
