About the Toolkit
Welcome to the updated LexDis Digital Accessibility toolkit. It has been nearly a year since the toolkit first came into being and in that time it has evolved substantially. Because of this we felt it was time to rework the existing content and add more new resources.
The Toolkit is a product of the Further and Higher Education Digital Accessibility Working Group (FHEDAWG) and has been curated by Assistive Learning, McNaught Consultancy, All Able, Kent County Council and the University of Kent.
Besides our curators, this toolkit would not have been possible without all of our knowledge contributors.
On November 12th 2019 this toolkit along with other work by our contributors on improving accessibility across the Public Sector was awarded an iESE Certificate of Excellence.
