Website Accessibility 2006, organised by accessibility specialists User Vision, web developers Parallel 56 and the legal team behind OUT-LAW.COM, aims to give guidance and the latest insight on best-practice in the field of web accessibility in the public sector.
Chris Rourke, Managing Director of User Vision, said: "Accessibility is a hot issue in the public sector, and with the new PAS 78 guidelines, and WCAG V2.0 on the horizon, plus the E-government take-up campaign, it is important that website professionals stay ahead of the game. This conference aims to do just that – to give specialist advice and guidance on the latest thinking whatever the level of understanding or experience the delegate has. It’s also a great opportunity to swap notes and ideas with peers, as well as a chance to get some free consultancy on your particular accessibility challenges."
The one-day event will also include speakers from RNIB, AbilityNet and the Scottish Executive.
The event takes place at The Scotsman Hotel, Edinburgh, from 10am on Tuesday 13th June 2006.
