Web Standards clinics
Bring your questions and challenges, general or specific, about the Web Standards and accessibility to receive advice and guidance in a supportive, informal group setting.
The clinics are held fortnightly for 2 hours.
They are run by Jason Kiss, Principal Advisor Accessibility, Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).
What the clinics are about
You can ask about:
- web accessibility, and
- how to implement the New Zealand Government Web Standards.
The emphasis is on best practice and practical solutions.

They are free to attend on a ‘drop-in’ basis (no reservation is needed).
