Lessons learned from accessibility testing

Description

We have had enough experience conducting tests with users for prototype validation, usability, user experience, etc. However, our hypotheses when performing accessibility tests proved to be inaccurate and this forced us to modify the tests at the time. We want to share our experience and listen to what you have, to make a more inclusive website.


Learning Outcomes

  • Learn about our discoveries while doing user testing for accessibility. What we did, did not, and should have done.
  • What it means to comply with WCAG 2.0 vs having a great user experience.
  • General recommendations on running the tests with users, keeping in mind their disabilities.

Target Audience

People who are thinking about running accessibility testing with users.
