Inclusive Design and Accessibility in Practice

Description

Inclusive Design means designing for everyone, regardless of their capabilities or disabilities. When your system or app is accessible by as many people as possible, only then can it reach its full potential. Therefore, good accessibility is important for the overall success of a website, system or app!

Designing for accessibility is boring, expensive, complex and time consuming – these are common statements we are often hearing during our work. From our experience, these statements only become true if you leave this topic out of the project until the end.

We want to enable you to be prepared for handling accessibility issues from the beginning and keeping the focus on all users during the development process. We will share with you hands-on information, practical tips & tricks and best practices for incorporating accessibility into your projects. Moreover, we will talk about common pitfalls to avoid and learnings from our work.

During the workshop, we will work on practical examples and show you how you can do some tests by yourself with simple tools & resources. We would also love to hear from your experiences, exchange practices and answer your specific questions.

Who should attend?

Accessibility is important throughout the whole project lifecycle and for all project team members, e.g.

  • UX Practitioners & UI Designers
  • Product Owners
  • Developers
  • User Researchers
  • Usability Testers

It is a workshop about fundamental topics of Inclusive Design, so it is suitable for all expert levels.
