Digital accessibility within the EU – The legislation & WCAG2.1 explained

Digital accessibility

The 23rd of September was an important milestone for most of the EU countries when it comes to ‘Digital accessibility’. 

After years of preparation, the EU legislation on digital accessibility has as a goal to foster the inclusion of citizens with (cognitive) disabilities as more and more information is shared in digital formats.

While most organisations started making their digital content accessible step by step, many practitioners struggle with the complexity of the legislation and with the practical implications.

Especially, when it comes to video and audio files, the legislation can be confusing.

In this webinar, Thomas Dieste (co-founder of Amberscript) explains the implications of the legislation on the publication of video and audio. Furthermore, Thomas will share how modern technology such as automatic speech recognition can help to create subtitles while staying within budget and within delivery deadlines.
