Sydney, Australia –27th August 2012 – With the deadline rapidly approaching for Government organizations in Australia to be WCAG 2.0 Level A compliant; it’s pertinent for marketing, web, digital and strategic level managers to start putting their web compliance strategy in motion if they have not already done so.
Leading enterprise web content management provider, Elcom, has partnered with usability and accessibility experts, Stamford Interactive, to deliver two complimentary webinars in September.
The first webinar to be presented on the 5th of September is entitled ‘Accessibility Compliance – 7 easy tips to get your web content accessible’. The aim of the webinar is to support organizations by providing best practice tips and tools for achieving and maintaining accessibility. The webinar will also discuss the most common misconception that web accessibility is about disability. Kim Chatterjee, a Senior User Experience Consultant and Accessibility expert at Stamford Interactive together with Elcom’s Product Director, Anthony Milner will present this webinar.
“Accessibility is often seen as a scary and difficult topic, but it’s actually all about understanding and meeting your audiences’ needs. I’ll be going through the reasons behind the various access requirements, and the techniques you can use to make sure the content you create and publish is in the right shape. You’ll notice that a lot of solutions are really simple, and all that’s really required is to form the right habits when creating content,” Kim Chatteriee commented.
The second webinar, to be presented on the 19th of September, is “Designing for Mobile – Top considerations when designing your mobile site”. Stamford Interactive’s Senior User Experience Consultant and Mobile Strategy expert Frankie Madden, and Anthony Milner, will be working together to present this webinar. The webinar will work through considerations to help organizations select the right mobile solution. The webinar will also summarize best practice tips and tools when designing for mobile.
Frankie Madden said “We often come across organizations who launch into designing their mobile solution without considering how it will be used by customers. I’ll be stepping through the things you’ll need to consider before any design commences as well as some best practice tips when you’re ready to design.”
Commenting on the webinar series, Elcom’s Marketing Manager Lee-Sia Yuen added “Developing the right strategy for your organisation and maintaining the quality you set out to establish is key to the success of your web or mobile project. These invaluable webinars will provide organizations with the tools and best-practice knowledge to assist their strategies. We have combined the expertise from our partners Stamford Interactive, with our own technology expertise, to offer attendees complimentary first-hand advice.”
