Lead Scotland are hosting a series of webinars on Zoom commencing October 13th about accessibility in digital content. The webinars will examine the most common accessibility problems within digital content and instruct participants how to avoid these issues. These webinars are intended for people looking to improve their employability through enhancing their digital expertise. Many people are facing an uncertain employment future due to the impacts of COVID-19 and Scotland’s exit from the EU.

Each webinar covers a single topic. The topics are:

  • Layout
  • Text format
  • Plain English
  • Colour and contrast
  • Mouse friendly navigation
  • Keyboard friendly navigation
  • Alt text
  • Complex images
  • Captions and transcripts
  • Forms

The webinars are hosted via Zoom and will make use of Google Jamboard. You do not need a Zoom account or Google account to participate, but you will need an email address and a reasonable internet connection. You can attend as many of the webinars as you would like, but you must register for each one individually.
