Create an easy-to-use experience that delights your user and reinforces the value of your business? Got it. Make all your designs adaptive to prepare for any and all devices that may be thrown your way? Check! Get leaner, more personalized, localized, and don’t forget to account for seniors, and low–literacy users? Well, okay. Oh, also, have you considered people with disabilities? Wait… what?
When we think about all that goes into mastering good design principles, it’s no wonder that tackling accessibility can appear like a daunting, unrealistic burden. How can we consider all of these highly technical needs when we don’t even know how people with disabilities even use the web? And, what about mobile? Or the Internet of Things? Time to give up?!
In this session, Elle will lead you on a somewhat tremulous journey through the wilderness of WCAG, deep into the mire of assistive technologies. But, stay the course! Before you know it, you’ll feel the firm ground of a grid layout beneath you once again. And, after this experience, you’ll be equipped to incorporate accessibility into each step of the design process with four simple but powerful techniques. Ready? Let’s go!
