Accessibility is not a checklist

Accessibility is not a checklist! Yet many focus on checking all the boxes to make their UI accessible and miss the bigger picture. Accessibility is not the goal in itself, but simply a means to an end: an inclusive experience for all users!

In this workshop, participants will learn how to spot the most common accessibility bugs plaguing an assistive tech user’s journey. Don’t know what types of assistive technology (or AT for short) is out there in the big wide world? No worries! Laura, UX Researcher for the AT development company Hope Tech, will explain what exists, how it works and what’s so cool about it. Spoiler alert: It’s the ability to provide access.

Web accessibility has to be anchored in the code, which can look scary at first. But don’t worry! Google Development Expert Julia will guide you through the other side of the console.log and teach you how to communicate these issues to your dev team.

All participants are cordially invited to bring their website for us to test together!
