Event Address

Online (via Zoom)

This session will support attendees to develop accessible practice when creating digital content, covering text, images and video. It will be delivered by two trainers: a representative from VocalEyes with digital accessibility expertise, and a visual awareness trainer who will demonstrate screen-reading software.

Areas addressed will include:

  • How to make website content accessible.
  • Including good practice in headings and link text, alt text, audio description of film, and consideration of the online visitor journey for people who are blind or visually impaired, and screen reader users.
  • Creating accessible social media posts across a range of platforms.


Please note – the session does not cover technical aspects of website development; the focus is on content.

This training is being presented by the Irish Museums Association and Wikimedia Community Ireland.
