Accessibility at Scale

Session Details

The outcome of designing at scale won’t be accessible products unless accessibility practices scale in parallel with design. There are six primary challenges to scaling accessibility:
1) Reliance on human testing which is especially complicated for large/dynamic products.
2) SaaS/Native app “release whenever you want” timelines.
3) Third party code/content managers.
4) Achieving “substantive WCAG conformance”
5) Closing the feedback loop by getting defects/feature requests from people with disabilities into the backlog.
6) Shifting the focus to an accessible experience, not just an accessible product.
