Why e-access 11

It's the accessibility event

In the internet age, every organisation is a technology organisation.

Your employees use IT and your customers or service users do as well. With millions in the UK affected by some form of disability, from dyslexia to mobility problems, no organisation can afford to be using technology that is not as accessible as possible, never mind the legal requirements and your corporate or public sector ethics.

Whatever stage you are at with your thinking on 'e-accessibility', from novice to old hand, our conference will help, from practical advice on where to start to focused discussion groups to hone your expertise.
