Log Jams: Unblocking your Backlogs with Multi-dimensional Accessibility Audits

A presentation at An Event Apart: Front-End Focus by Dave Rupert

As designers, developers, and managers a lot of our lives are spent beholden to the product backlog by creating, assigning, or fixing issues. But accessibility audits don’t have to be bad news! In this talk, I share some strategies for eating the proverbial elephant by using modern spreadsheet applications to breakdown and visualize accessibility problems from a variety of different angles. Through that we can improve the accessibility audit hand-off process, the development process, and the entire concept of backlogs, all while preserving a sense of autonomy for everyone involved. Achieve the ultimate goal of creating more usable and accessible products.
