Over 1 billion people, or 15% of the world's population, have a disability. Yet 98.1% of the top 1 million websites have detectable accessibility failures that can exclude users with disabilities.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn about accessibility best practices and immediately apply them by evaluating an existing website for accessibility and making iterative improvements. The workshop will follow an approachable workflow:
- Testing with keyboard navigation, screen readers, content review, and automated tools
- Connecting findings to accessibility guidelines and best practices
- Prioritizing and making needed changes
- Embracing accessibility as a natural part of building great products
