Talk: Beyond compliance, meeting people’s needs
by Caspian Turner
WCAG offers an excellent framework. It is a good foundation for ensuring websites work with assistive technologies and that content is understandable for everyone.
However, conducting usability studies involving users with a diverse range of needs is crucial to ensuring your website works for everyone.
We’ll cover inclusive usability studies, how we recruit participants, script sessions and report findings to enhance user experience ensuring that it’s not *just* possible for users to access your website but a good user experience is offered, regardless of how users are accessing your site.
If you would like to speak at A11y Meetup Berlin we will be glad to receive your talk proposal https://a11y-meetup-berlin.de/submit.html

The Location is accessible for wheelchair users. This includes the entrance (no steps to get into the location), toilets and the stage.
We will provide live (human) captions during the event. The transcription will be displayed under the Slides. As this can be a bit small to read (3 lines of text), you can bring your own device (e.g. Tablet) to read it in your browser. We will provide a link for the transcription.
Those who would like to utilize the transcription on the big screen are recommended to sit close to the front of the board.
A big thanks to Deque for sponsoring the live captions!
