Upcoming 2024 Talk Series at Nordic Accessibility Community Group

Hello everyone,

As co-chair of the Nordic Accessibility Community Group, I’m pleased to update you on our series of community talks.

These sessions are designed to deepen our understanding and enhance our practices around web accessibility, serving as a vital platform for both knowledge-sharing and professional development. Through these talks, we aim to equip our members and the broader community with the tools and insights needed to promote accessibility in digital environments effectively.

Reflections: Jean-Yves Moyen’s Insightful Session

Our series began with Jean-Yves Moyen’s talk on Tuesday, May 21st, titled “ACT: Towards Consistent Accessibility Conformance Testing”. Jean-Yves provided an in-depth look at the ACT Rules framework, emphasizing its importance for consistent accessibility testing. It was an enlightening session that covered the structure of the ACT ruleset, its application, and its benefits for creators, tool developers, and users.

Upcoming: Emma Dawson’s Presentation on Focus Management

We invite you to join us for the next talk featuring Emma Dawson, scheduled for Tuesday, June 18th at 14:00. Emma will address “Making Interactions More Accessible with Focus Management”. She will discuss practical techniques for improving feedback to keyboard and screen reader users, illustrated with examples from recent accessibility audits. This is an excellent opportunity to enhance your understanding of effective focus management in web accessibility; an all too often overlooked part of making digital experiences accessible.
