Website Accessibility Is a Social Justice Issue

Description

Discussions about web accessibility are usually focused on the technical challenges, like ARIA roles and keyboard navigation. But a website that’s truly universally-accessible needs much more than that; building a more inclusive web means using clear language, guiding people to the answers they need, and making responsive sites that load quickly on whatever device they’re using.

We’ll explore a range of practical improvements you can make today, no matter the size of your organization or development budget.


Learning Outcomes

  • Discuss strategies for including accessibility as a core content attribute, rather than an afterthought to your content creation process
  • Explore what accessibility means from a design and UX standpoint, including pattern libraries, color contrasts, and information priority.
  • Learn about new tools and approaches to improve your site performance and technical accessibility.
