Colin Stenning of Bracknell Forest Council and Vicky Sargent of Better Connected in conversation

Bracknell Forest Council has been a consistently high performer in Better Connected’s accessibility testing. Web manager Colin Stenning explains why maintaining a website’s accessibility over time requires constant monitoring and periodic testing with people who have keyboard-only access or rely on assistive technologies like screen readers. It isn't enough that web developers and content editors have the right skills and knowledge to design-in accessability. Awareness of the need for accessible websites among budget holders is essential too.
