During the workshop, dedicated to anyone having never experienced how strong the impact of cultural, material and digital barriers can be, especially when accessing learning resources, Ombretta Gaggi, Professor of Web Accessibility at the University of Padua, will explain why thinking about accessibility as the last phase of a design process is a big mistake.

Ombretta will start with a small summary of the legal situation and how people with disabilities navigate the web, what kind of experience they have. Then she will go into more detailed explanation of the W3C guidelines (WCAG), also giving some concrete and useful examples for content creators (concerning accessible text and pdf format, videos and accessible information and materials to be uploaded on the web). This workshop is designed to be active and interactive.
