Product teams are harnessing the power that design systems offer, creating digital solutions
efficiently, consistently, and at scale. But, as teams move towards this level of maturity, are
they similarly maturing in their application of accessibility into their processes and output?
Sadly, many design systems are failing to address the needs of all audiences. From tokens to
annotations, each step in the creation of a design system must consider and incorporate digital
accessibility. Teams are facing issues regarding who is responsible for which aspects of
accessibility, and where and how to document accessibility considerations.
In this forum we will openly discuss how product teams can incorporate more accessibility
considerations into their design systems.
