I also give training on Web Accessibility, in particular in Turkish. An Introduction to Web Accessibility in Turkish (Web Erişilebilirliği: Standartlar, Kilavuzlar ve Değerlendirme Teknikleri) is available on METU Open Courseware platform. I have also given training in Turkish on Web Accessibility (in 2020) that has three parts: Introduction to Web accessiblity, Web accessibility stakeholders, and Evaluation and Measurement.
