We want to increase sensitivity of coders and ICT users towards fully accessible material. According to our provisional programme, the content will host:

Emhpasis will be also given to the limitations of the tool and the need for the Internet applications to take accessibility into account at design and development phases.
(The talk will be given by Mr Christos Demetriades, the Digital Agenda Cyprus Young Advisor).
2. A short workshop on how to create an accessible presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint
3. A short workshop on the basics of how to build accessible Websites and Web services
