Add Accessibility to Your Process the Easy-ish Way

Finding Accessibility Not-That-Accessible to your team? Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or not even sure where to start? If you are hungry for help then look no further and get yourself some heaping platefuls of knowledge, tips, best practices, and inspiration! We'll cover the basics of how people with disabilities use technology, what the basic requirements are, and how to find qualified help (how to avoid the fakers!). We'll discuss how to evaluate YOUR users, (i.e., the members of your organization) and build a process they’ll want to adopt, as well as learn how to write custom requirements and tests that minimize stress on your team but cover all the bases (or use ours, they are done and free!). We'll also teach you how to inspire your team and make sure they are prepared.
