We delve into the world of web accessibility and discuss the new regulations for websites and mobile applications for public sector bodies

Accessible websites are better for everyone. Focusing on usability will maximise the return on your digital investments and help avoid risk. 

Earlier this year Julia Taylor, subject specialist (accessibility and inclusion) at Jisc, and Robert McLaren from Policy Connect, met to discuss the new UK accessibility legislation which sets requirements for public sector websites to comply with by September 2019.
