Shifting Left: How to Think About Accessibility Early

Samuel Proulx

About this video


It’s well known that retrofitting existing designs takes far longer than thinking about accessibility from the start. In this session, you’ll learn how to build accessibility into your design work from the start by involving the voices of people with disabilities. We’ll cover topics including training, ideation and inclusive research sessions, prototype reviews and testing. Join Sam as he guides you through designing for assistive technology users, and covers critical considerations when beginning this journey.
