Moving past compliance to good usability

Alasdair Stuart-Bell, Eric Hind

About this video


Good usability requires more than just being compliant with accessibility rules, laws and requirements. We also need to understand whether a solution is usable for people who have accessibility needs. The webinar will help you understand how you can be compliant, but still fail the user. Then we will explore how you can define the usability problems and how to fix them.

He has substantial experience as a UX research, as a consultant on accessibility auditing as well as assessing accessibility beyond compliance. Eric believes that contributing to better accessibility. He is always glad to work with people who know (or want to know) what the 11 in a11y is, but is neutral on if it pronounced as ally or a-eleven-y. He is thrilled that his house renovation is almost complete but not as thrilled that his children are continuously singing Kate Bush songs off-key based on a single tv episode.
