Internet has become an inevitable part of our daily lives and is highly integrated into our work and home environments. This has created new opportunities for most people, but is a major barrier for people with disabilities who cannot access all parts of websites. Digital accessibility is therefore crucial. Digital accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with websites, cell phones, and other digital tools.
Digital Accessibility Training Programme, Erasmus+ was created to meet the accessibility requirements of European legislation for websites and cell phone applications of public sector organisations. The project involves 6 partner organisations from four participating European countries: Slovenia, Poland, Greece, Slovenia and Spain. These partners have jointly developed a certified digital accessibility training course to be offered to various groups of key stakeholders in response to the growing labour market demand for digital accessibility experts in Europe.
