We start at a high level, with accessibility trainings  like “Introduction to Digital Accessibility.” In it, we talk about why accessibility matters, and how you can embed accessible thinking into every facet of your organizational culture. 

Then we get into “Understanding Accessible Experiences.” In this training  we focus on the perspective of people with disabilities and some of the barriers they face in their everyday lives.

We also help build your in-house accessibility testing skills and we get into subjects like web and mobile accessibility testing.
