Our next event

Fix the Six: A personal and practical explanation of web accessibility

7:30pm Tues 18/10/2022 @ The Blue Moon, Cambridge

How accessible is your website? Are you losing clients and customers?

For this event we will look at accessibility as an opportunity for you to reach more people by making your apps, websites, and communications more inclusive.

Accessibility is more than tech for good. It’s about making sure your digital product or service is accessible to everyone who needs it. It’s also a legal requirement for many, as well as a business and moral obligation.

Presenting will be Molly Watt, an Accessibility and Usability Consultant, and Danny Lancaster, an Accessibility Test Analyst.

Molly has Usher Syndrome, a condition that leads to deaf blindness. She will talk about her own experience of using technology as she was growing up, throughout school and as she entered the world of work. Molly is a powerful advocate of accessible tech and was even flown to California by Apple for consultation.

Danny will give practical advice on the most common accessibility issues on the web, how to test for them, and how to fix them.

Both Danny and Molly work at Nexer Digital who have offices in Cambridge and Macclesfield. It’s where our own Steve works too!
