    There’s a lot to consider if you’re going to do accessibility research effectively and respectfully.

    Using examples from previous user research and accessibility studies she’s conducted throughout her career, Rebecca will share lessons learned and guidance to consider when planning and executing remote usability testing with participants with disabilities, including the four specific disability categories: visual, motor, hearing and cognitive.

    Rebecca Topps is a user experience researcher who specializes in accessibility research and is passionate about creating usable and inclusive experiences for everyone. Over the past two years, Rebecca has been researching methods to easily embed accessibility into user experience and research teams. She has worked with a variety of companies and organizations including, AbilityNet, Barclays, BBC, Department for Work and Pensions and, more recently, as a contractor at Atlassian. Originally from England, she’s currently based in Sydney, Australia.
