When we design products or websites for people like ourselves, there are many others who are, as a result, left out. From visually impaired users who rely on assistive technology, to people with a temporary injury such as a broken arm, tech users are forever diverse and beautifully unique. The products we design can, and should, reflect the extremely wide range of human experiences and needs.
Yet however well-intended, website accessibility is too often seen as a checklist to be marked off at the end of the design process. While elements such as alt text for images or keyboard navigation are critical and can make a big difference for website users, there’s much more to accessibility than a dry list of must-haves.
Eden Spivak and Nir Horesh will shift the discussion around accessible design from accommodating the needs of a small minority group to creating better, more inclusive interfaces for us all - no matter our identity, background, knowledge or ability.
In this webinar, you'll learn:
- Why accessibility matters
- What inclusive design is
- How to create better, more inclusive interfaces for all users
- How to adopt inclusive design as a mindset across all design projects
