Meet-Up Details

Learn the top 3 strategies that every UX designer needs to know when it comes to designing for accessibility.

“Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can equally perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with websites and tools. It also means that they can contribute equally without barriers.” end quote. – Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

Designing with accessibility best practices benefits people without disabilities too. This is because impairments can be permanent (e.g. being blind), temporary (e.g. using your screen in bright sunlight), or situational (e.g. having scratched glasses).

"The global market of people with disabilities is over 1 billion, with a spending power of more than $6 trillion. Although accessibility awareness is on the rise, there is still plenty of room for improvement with 59,653,607 distinct accessibility errors detected across the 1 million home pages—an average of 60 errors per page." —Think With Google
