When version 2.0 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) was released in 2008, the web was a very different place.

Fast forward 9 years to the present day and we see a digital world with a multitude of devices that go beyond the desktop computing paradigm of 2008 – we need new guidelines to tackle this new world.

These new guidelines, WCAG 2.1, are due to be released in mid-2018, but the draft should be firming up by the end of the year, so this was a good chance to see the progress and understand the changes.

During the webinar Alastair guided you through the changes taking an ‘interact-first’ approach, outline the issues people have that are not covered by the guidelines yet and how you can tackle those as designers and developers.This webinar should be viewed by anyone working in digital design, including but not limited to:- Designers- UXers- Developers- Account Managers- Project Managers- Business Owners- Marketing ManagersRegister.

Alastair Campbell is a global leader in the field of accessibility. In 2001, he helped establish Nomensa, where he is the Director of Accessibility. He works tirelessly on exciting new research and development projects to continually discover methods and innovations to help people get the most out of digital technology.
