Details

Digital accessibility means that your website, mobile app, or electronic document can be navigated and understood by all users, including those with visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive disabilities. In this presentation, I'll cover some basics: Who's affected? Where can you go for more information? How do we make our websites and app more accessible? I will also give an overview of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which have become the industry standard. Throughout my presentation, I'll give practical advice for baking accessibility into all phases of a design project.
