Accessibility Beyond Coding: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility

Many assume that once you have a web designer create an accessible website for you, it’s enough. It’s further from the truth. Accessibility is more than just about coding, and it’s not only web developers that are responsible for it. There are other accessibility issues to consider such as ensuring good color contrast, writing in plain language, coupling aural information with quality transcription, and many others. Even if a designer makes it accessible, the website may become inaccessible if it’s maintained by a small business owner or an editor not aware of content accessibility requirements, for example.
The talk will focus on some examples and solutions of how you can ensure that your website is accessible beyond coding. They may be new to some and sound like a common sense to others, but sadly there are many websites that fail at them. Let’s make website content usable and accessible beyond coding!
