Interactive workshops on default accessibility in authoring tools

Could your next authoring tool improve accessibility?

Take the opportunity to learn more about built in accessibility in authoring tools and influence the market sharing your experiences!

Within the EU-funded project We4Authors, Funka, EDF, ERRIN and ANEC are inviting you to join one of our interactive and free of charge workshops in Brussels. The workshops are specifically designed to meet demands of three target audiences:

  • October 15th the perspective of end users with disabilities is in focus (co-host: EDF)
  • October 16th web professionals from public sector are invited (co-host: ERRIN)
  • October 17th we welcome CMS producers, suppliers and providers as well as standardisation experts (co-host: ANEC)

We4Authors is a EU-funded research project lead by Funka, partnering with CTIC. We have mapped the most popular authoring tools in the public sector throughout the EU and tested them when it comes to built in accessibility features and support for web authors to comply with the Web Accessibility Directive. The next step is to initiate a dialogue on how the future authoring tools can provide better support for accessibility by default.
