Accessibility for UX Designers

User Experience practitioners are in a unique position to effectively champion accessibility within their teams and organizations. You are trusted advisors and connect with all the right stakeholders for a project, including the people that will use the product you're building. You are most often the person that connects the big picture with in the trenches hands-on work.

Filled with practical advice and examples from real projects, this session will provide you with an in-depth look at accessibility requirements for the modern web, recognize accessibility challenges earlier in the design process and communicate accessibility concepts
more clearly with the rest of your team. This is not your typical accessibility workshop -- you'll get both the strategies and tactics you need to make a difference as you tackle real design problems for real people.

You'll learn:

  • How to integrate accessibility into the design process the right way (hint: it isn't just a rubber stamp at the end of a project!)
  • Why developers need you, why you need them, and how you can help make each other's lives easier.
  • How you can use accessibility as a design tool to simply create designs that are better for everyone
  • Methods for communicating accessibility requirements effectively with your teams (both internal and external)
  • The top 5 things that MUST be specified in order to successfully implement accessibility in a project
