Accessibility checklist for UX Designers
Many UX designers ask - Where to start with Accessibility? I've used good color contrast, is that enough for Accessibility? What's my responsibility as a designer to include Accessibility? Accessibility seems to be a daunting task for designers as there are 78 guidelines in WCAG 2.1. In this presentation, Rajesh shares his experience of including Accessibility standards in the design process to deliver inclusive experiences.

Rajesh Kalidindi has spent a decade in delivering inclusive experiences in his two decades of UX career. He led Accessibility programs at Microsoft before joining Liberty. Rajesh is currently leading an effort to make Liberty Insurance and Safeco digital experiences accessible for all users regardless of their abilities. Rajesh was a board member for three years with UXPA International (User Experience Professionals Association) and founding member of Seattle chapter of UXPA.
