Let’s make the web accessible for everyone – The A11Y Collective

by

It’s almost May 21st, Global Accessibility Awareness Day! Did you put it in your calendar already? No? Well do it, quickly! Because on this day we officially launch The A11Y Collective: a platform with online courses fully focused on Web Accessibility.

 

The web for everyone

The A11Y Collective believes in an accessible web for everyone. Not only because we ourselves think it’s really important, but also because web accessibility is becoming increasingly important worldwide. In the United States of America, an average of six web accessibility cases are taken to court per day. Six… Per day! ?

 

Closer to home, in the Netherlands every single governmental website and app needs to be fully accessible by 23 September 2020. So Web Accessibility really is necessary!

Follow an online course taught by experts

The A11Y Collective wants to share their knowledge and skills about web accessibility with everyone worldwide. And you know what? Visual designers, (UX) designers, web developers, content managers and editors, product owners, entrepreneurs, anyone can make an impact when it comes to Web Accessibility after attending the online courses. How cool is that?!

The courses are of high quality and are taught by experts in the field of Web Accessibility. One of the trainers, call her the Beyoncé of Web Accessibility, is Rian Rietveld. If you like it, you should really take a course on it! ?

“We like to make a difference together for all those people who really benefit from an accessible website. The great thing is: we’re talking about everyone! Not only about the 20% of the population who officially have a disability, but also about you or me when we’re trying to order from that one webshop in a noisy environment or in bright sunlight.”
