The accessibility conversations you want to be having
Posted 29th January 2024 in Accessibility
For a lot of companies, accessibility conversations centre around achieving a certain level of accessibility; usually that’s something to do with WCAG (the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) to a particular version and conformance level.
Where I work there are lots and lots (and lots!) of digital products. All are working hard to achieve a level of accessibility, but the vast majority are not at that baseline WCAG 2.1 AA level of compliance yet.
Last week I was heartened when two separate conversations about two separate products were around the experience of screen reader users, rather than if a screen reader user would actually be able to use the product.
These are the types of accessibility conversations you want to be having!
