Cathy Nicoll will discuss the interaction between accessibility , learning styles and usability in online publications. Starting with the basics: the simple check for the infamous ‘alt text’ behind non-text elements and the need to support users who rely on screen readers, she will explore how an understanding of learning styles can help create accessible content that is also user friendly.

Cathy Nicoll AE is an editor, writer and trainer who has been working on government websites since the mid-1990s. In that time, web accessibility become a requirement of all online content. Cathy currently writes and edits online systems guides and argues with developers about capitalisation and plain English.
