End of course
The course was more advanced than my current job skills require. It was a good stretch for me to explore this topic.
I think this is an important part of the course on how to make digital interfaces easier to use for people with vision, hearing and cognitive impairments. In real life, these people do have a lot of problems.
We are looking at ways to make digital services more effective for people with disabilities. This course is very close to our topic. It's great.
