Overview: A lot of accessibility issues are created before the development stage, whether it is from the organisations brand guidelines, technology choices or the design. This webinar aims to bring forward the thinking on accessibility to the design stage, by designers. Based on many workshops with designers and developers, there are ways of explaining accessibility that make sense during the design process. Rather than an abstract check-list, you can group accessibility requirements into four 'interactions' so that it is easier to design for. We will arm you with tactics and techniques to get designers and UX people thinking about accessibility from their first sketch
- How to persuade people to consider accessibility earlier
- How to describe accessibility issues in interaction terms
- Which checks and definitions can be used during the design process
- Techniques designers should be using
