Many development teams find it difficult to consistently, efficiently, and cost-effectively make their content accessible to people with disabilities. In this talk, I will discuss some approaches that teams can use to accomplish these goals. Specifics include:

  • A high-level introduction to accessibility and ADA compliance
  • The role of education and when it should happen
  • What each team role needs to do to make their product accessible
  • A high-level overview of testing strategies and tools (automated and manual)
  • How to address accessibility at the planning phase
  • How to address accessibility at the design phase
  • How to address accessibility at the development phase
  • How to integrated automated checks in your continuous integration testing
  • How to address accessibility after deployment
