Accessible Products: It Takes A Village

When it comes to accessibility, we tend to focus a great deal on the code involved in making digital properties. While accessible code is essential, it is only one part of the larger accessibility machine. Design plays a critical part in whether or not a product is accessible, especially to individuals with Cognitive Disabilities. Join Shell Little, Digital Accessibility Specialist at Wells Fargo DS4B, as she breaks down where Design can squash an otherwise accessible product. Audience can expect to leave with a better understanding of the role design plays along with real world examples of accessible design wins and fails. Accessibility isn’t just a Dev responsibility, it truly takes a village.
