Here is one of their fearless leaders showing off his favorite slides. Yes, it was a visual pun.
(We’re not responsible for those.)
Second, a big thank you to Fumi Arriga for speaking about this very important topic in user experience.
He emphasized that if you make accessibility important the whole way through the process, it’ll be easier for leadership to say yes. Having accessibility as an afterthought means your leaders are only seeing one more thing added to the budget.
Be sure to check out his powerpoint: IXDA-FumiAriga-CanWeTalkAccessibility. It provides pages of tools that are already available (and usually free) for all organizations to check their products for those with visual difficulties.
And next time come see the presentations in person!
