Digital Accessibility Soapbox
Digital accessibility came into my concern five years ago when I designed the user interface for a physical product. I wondered how people with disabilities may actually use this thing I just designed. Fast forward five years and I sit with clients and partners on developing universal design strategy to embed accessibility standards through the entire product lifecycle. Digital accessibility lawsuits are on the rise and Beyonce and Dominos are only just the beginning. This episode talks about my history with digital accessibility, legal considerations and history, maturity of teams to embed accessibility standards into your design systems, and where you can go and learn about digital accessibility. I start off this episode pissed off because as a design professional, this is a no-brainer. But in this age...I can't take anything for granted.
