Making Essential Digital Communications Accessible & Inclusive (TextHelp)

In this time of increasing uncertainty and change, web accessibility and inclusive marketing is more important than ever.

As organisations take steps to limit travel, cancel or postpone face-to-face appointments and replace in-person events with virtual ones, it’s vitally important that the information you produce online can be accessed and understood by every website user. It’s also critical to ensure your comms don’t alienate or leave anyone behind.

In this webinar we'll look at the case for building accessible and inclusive websites and digital campaigns and advice on how to do it.

If you are working to improve your digital communications, boost your brand reputation, and build more inclusive marketing and digital experiences then this is a must-watch!
