For educational purpose, I illustrated 5 quotes from my last week training on accessibility. Those are about understanding disabled people’s needs, reaching compliance levels, connecting design decisions and needs, giving the rules of the forms and the compatibility between design accessibility and innovation.
Accessibility is unfortunately still an afterthought on many projects. User interaction and accessibility requirements are poorly documented, at best. Or forgotten, when handing over designs to developer teams. And fixing it later costs a LOT more than building it right to begin with. Great documentation helps teams implement accessibility requirements the right way. I will tell you why, what and how designers can document different aspects of accessibility and user interactions requirements, to build better more inclusive products.
I wrote a quick tweet about teaching the basics of accessibility and colors to design students that go quite some attention. It brought up some interesting discussions. So I thought I would share with you all the resources, tips and tools I regularly use to build and check the color accessibility of my products in one place. Enjoy.
