What is universal design? And where does accessibility fit into the mix with this concept?
Join UXPA International and eSSENTIAL Accessibility for a live webinar event Universal Design with Accessibility in Mind on Friday, August 23 at 12pm ET to learn the answers to these questions and much, much more. To give you a sneak peek at what to expect…
Universal design is a concept in which online experiences are designed to be usable by all people, to meet the needs of all users, with and without disabilities.
Accessibility is not simply an add-on to development, but a key part of the overall universal design process and user experience journey. In this webinar, you’ll learn the accessibility lingo (think WCAG, 508, ADA, etc.), understand how to focus on the barrier (not the disability), become well-versed in content etiquette, and get to know various forms of assistive technology. We’ll also share insights on the disability market size and trends, and the positive ROI impact a great accessible user experiences can deliver.
