Content Author Training

Content Author Training

Want to produce content that is accessible, inclusive and usable?

What is Content Author Training?

Content Author training will provide web teams with the accessibility knowledge to create fully accessible content. It will highlight the access barriers that can exist for users with a disability and users of assistive technology.

Using feedback from our pan-disability testing team and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) as a base link, participants will learn what to do and what not to do in order to produce online content, office content and communication content that is as inclusive as possible. This training can also incorporate creating accessible Word Documents and accessible PDF documents.

Why choose us?

As a national charity who delivers services for the users with a disability, we have a vast amount of experience and understanding of the barriers that users with a disability will face when trying to access digital material.


Our courses have been developed utilising feedback from our pan-disability testing team; years of experience of internationally recognised guidelines; and working with major organisations across a host of different sectors.

How long will it take?

The training can be delivered in a minimum of 4 hours, however it is recommended to be delivered in 1 full-day.

The inclusion of Word and PDF Accessibility will require extra time.

What are the benefits?
