Learn how designers and product owners can lead the way with understanding their responsibilities and implementing good processes when it comes to designing inclusive, accessible apps.
Mobile apps are for everyone – and they’re not about the digital world, but the real world around us. In 2017, it’s estimated that around 1 billion people around the world suffer from some form of disability, while 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide.
As societies age, accessibility continues to be an important part of the global conversation about digital inclusiveness. Yet it’s in the everyday work of designers and developers where the true magic happens.
Inclusive design is about so much more than designing for people with disability. You never know the exact context of how a user interacts with your product.
Everyone is different, and we all have a role to play in creating inclusive (digital) experiences. These talks and videos provide the foundations for what makes accessible and inclusive design, and will help you see the world through another’s eyes.
May 21 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
To coincide with this event, we teamed up with the lovely folks from A11y Bytes to create a whiteboard animation about accessibility—a fun, informative piece targeted at the creators of digital experiences.
