1 in 5 people in the UK have a disability or situation making it difficult for them to use a website without a barrier, such as sight loss, a physical or neurological disability or learning difficulties.
Unfortunately, websites are not accessible by default – they need to be made that way. So come learn with us! The ‘Purple Pound’ describes the amount of money spent by UK households with a disability each year. In 2021 that figure was over £274bn.
On March 13 at 11am, Small Business Britain will host a webinar with digital accessibility specialist Mark Tomkins. He will help you reach that additional 20% of your potential audience, explain the common problems with most online content and show you how to create an inclusive website experience for those with disabilities.
Tomkins will cover:
- How to check the accessibility of your website
- The general design of your website: colours, contrast, layout, tables
- Working out what you can and cannot do yourself
- How to best share your content: images, video, documents and files
- Online shops: how to remove barriers and reach more customers
- Appropriate content and wording
- Online forms: how to make them accessible
- Heading, structures, link text & buttons: why this is vital to those who use screen readers!
