Description

CGI Next will be hosting Käyttäjän ystävät ry's upcoming event on 19th of April at their office in Karvaamokuja 2, Helsinki

-----

Theme:

The topic of the event will be Accessible Digital Services

Accessibility is a prerequisite for good design. The EU Accessibility Directive will be implemented in Finland from September 2018 onwards. The directive requires most of the public organizations to create fully accessible websites and digital services. Even though the directive legally binds only public sector, its impacts will be seen in the private sector, too.

Accessibility is a clear trend. But how do we as designers make sure our solutions are accessible?

We invite you to CGI Next to learn more about accessible digital services and user interfaces.
