Friday | 9:00 – 12:30
User experience designers know that making people successful is the best way to achieve product success. However, people with disabilities are not typically considered in the design process, and efforts to ensure success are normally addressed in code rather than through strategy and design. In this workshop we will use design thinking methods to explore problems that people with disabilities encounter when working with digital products and to conceptualize solutions. We will then cover accessible user experience design patterns and best practices, and discuss methods for integrating accessibility into the design process.
