Summary of week 1
Congratulations. You have nearly concluded the first week of the digital accessibility course.
In this first week, we have:
- looked at disability, businesses championing digital accessibility and the concepts of user experience, usability and accessibility;
- identified various ways in which content can be represented (text to speech, symbols for text; text equivalents for images; captions and audio descriptions for videos);
- explored situations in which users depend on assistive technologies and digital accessibility;
- and seen that accessible design has benefits beyond people with disabilities, and may even benefit you now or sometime later.
