A WAMDIA multiplier event was organized on 26-August-2019 by iTStudy Hungary Ltd. in Gödöllő, Hungary.
The participants – VET teachers, SME employees, representatives of public institutions – were informed about the results of the WAMDIA project, including experiences of the pilot course.
Guest presenters, Károly Szántai and Zsolt Edelényi (both web accessibility experts, Zsolt having a person with sight impairment in his family) delivered very informative and motivating presentations, full of real-life examples related to digital accessibility – typical mistakes, and their immediate effect on people with disabilities. They highlighted some important rules that general ICT users can easily start to apply.
