On the 16th of May it is Global Accessibility Awareness Day, and we will celebrate it by collaborating with MOBGEN with a workshop on Accessible Design!
In this workshop, we aim to give you the knowledge and tools needed to start making your digital products accessible - with the main focus being around mobile applications. By sharing practical examples and tips that can be directly applied in your own projects, you’ll leave this workshop with a new view on accessibility and hopefully the inspiration needed to push for inclusive design within your teams.
Some of the topics covered in the workshop are:
- How devices adapt to accommodate users with impairments
- How to design for Accessibility
- How to user test your UX Writing for VoiceOver
- How to convince your team (boss) to buy into Accessibility
As a courtasy of Mobgen we will arrange dinner for the participants, so no need to worry and arrive on time! :)
