Web accessibility webinars | University of Oxford

Web accessibility webinars

A free interactive webinar series on web accessibility, commencing January 2019, is available to all members of the University

Accessibility is about enabling any user to access content, however they choose, and it is vital that the University of Oxford continues to work to ensure equal access and opportunities.

The series will include seven webinars, aimed at website owners, managers, content editors, designers, web developers and testers. Delegates will be free to watch as many sessions as they feel are relevant to them.  The webinars will be available at your own desk through a standard internet browser. Anyone with a keen interest in accessibility is encouraged to participate.

All webinars will be held from 3pm to 5pm on the dates shown below. To book and find further information, please visit the online booking system and search for ‘Web Accessibility’, or follow the links below:
