Written by: Shannon George

Original Presentation Date: July 2, 2019

To ensure accessibility as an outcome, organizations must make sure that accessibility and inclusion embedded in their mindset, processes, and tools they’re already using, rather than in the head of a single accessibility expert. But how do you make that happen? In this engaging webinar, Chief Experience Officer Derek Featherstone covered real-world examples of how to make accessibility live in your automation tools, style guides, pattern libraries, and design systems, ready to create a more accessible and inclusive web. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to examine your own process to look for opportunities to consciously include, rather than unconsciously exclude
  • Common mistakes organizations make when they misinterpret accessibility advice or misunderstand their users’ accessibility needs
  • How incorporating people with disabilities into your processes leads to a more accessible product for everyone
  • One possible journey that your organization can take to achieve accessibility as an outcome
