eLearning testing for screen reader with UK Coaching

UK Coaching is currently building an eLearning course (with three modules) aimed at people who want to get into coaching and start out as an assistant coach.

We are building the course to be compatible with screen readers and a range of accessible features.

As such, we are looking for a maximum of 3 people to test the product at the stage, and who would be willing to provide feedback.

If you would like to have a chat about this, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
