The training is aimed at designers, project managers, procurers and information officers.
Accessibility is in equal parts technology and ”soft” parts. How a website looks and is percieved has a substantial impact on how accessible it is. Readability, contrasts and click surfaces is both part of the overall design and vital for accessibility.
Navigation concept, object placement and how functions and content are connected are important for the website’s percieved pedagogical and availability aspects – and by and large, the design is the deciding factor for whether it is successful or not.
Topics that will be discussed during the training:
- Readability an typography
- Colours and contrasts
- Click areas and website logic
- Related information and object placement
- Messiness and moving objects
- Abandoning conventions
Funka’s introduction to accessibility is recommended.
This is not a design course. We will rather show examples, both good and bad, on sound design from an accessibility standpoint. For example, we will discuss how primary content can be paired with related information, how to show that something is clickable and how to use design indicators, that help the user understand how to interact with the interface.
