Accessibility in digital communication
25 April 2023, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
Free of charge
In digital communication, accessibility is not just a buzzword or a nice-to-have. It’s a default mindset to embrace and implement. Accessibility goes hand in hand with inclusivity: not excluding anyone and making your (digital) message available to everyone. On April 25, we’ll do a deep-dive into accessibility and talk about legislation, WCAG guidelines, A11Y, and much more.
This event will be given in Dutch.

What our experts write about accessibility:
- One in eight people in the Netherlands are living with a long-term physical, psychological, intellectual, sensory, or intellectual disability. If you offer products or services in the Netherlands, it is forbidden to discriminate between people with or without a disability. Yet there are still many companies that only assess their digital sales and service channels on the speed and responsiveness on each device. Why do companies often see digital accessibility, and therefore the WCAG 2.1 guidelines as optional? At iO, Software Architect Lucien Immink is committed to creating accessible webshops, applications and sites and explains how to make your digital channels accessible and inclusive.Read more
