On the last day of the Train-The-Trainer event, the University of Maribor presented the Course of Programming/Developing for Digital Accessibility. For this course, 9 lessons were prepared including developing web pages with appropriate structure and navigation markup, accessible multimedia content, web forms, and tables as well as the development of accessible web pages using the modern frameworks like Bootstrap. The course gave the practical view of web accessibility and showed how to develop an accessible website. Attendants were able to do some practical exercises that demonstrated different aspects of programming accessible web applications.
