Accessible Components Design to Development

A presentation at SmashingConf SF by Carie Fisher

Smashing Conference San Francisco

Smashing Conference San Francisco

Digital accessibility is the practice of making products — such as websites and apps — accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities. But accessibility is often an afterthought at the end of a project when a user submits a bug or when legal issues arise — if it is thought of at all.

In this workshop, Carie will walk through the process of creating accessible front-end components from design to development. Throughout the workshop sessions, we will rely on accessibility best practices/guidelines and utilize testing tools and techniques at each step of the product development lifecycle.
