The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) held a full day Web Accessibility Best Practices Training on 5 July 2005 in Lisbon, Portugal, as part of the WAI-TIES Project (WAI - Training, Implementation, Education, Support). This training was hosted by Programa Acesso da UMIC (ACESSO - Program of the Knowledge Society Agency in the Ministry of Science, Technology & High Education).
The Web accessibility training covered the following topics:
While participation was open to anyone interested in Web development, the event was specifically designed for experienced Web developers with basic knowledge of Web accessibility and little or no experience in Web accessibility evaluation. We especially encouraged participation from representatives of governmental or non-profit organizations and from different regions and languages in Europe.
