How to Be an Accessibility Ally
In the constant fight against deadlines, testers have trouble finding time to check for accessibility in their project. When push comes to shove and decisions need to be made, the concerns of users with disabilities are far too often put on the back burner. Nathan Rogowski has developed testing approaches that you can apply early in the process to effectively catch accessibility bugs that block some users from getting the full benefit of your software. Nathan discusses which areas of accessibility testing will give the most return on your investment, the benefits and limitations of automated tools, and how to use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Nathan shows how to use the WCAG’s four principles to maximize efficiency. Join Nathan to learn how to quickly and effectively test color contrast, keyboard-only navigation, switch access, and screen readers. Leave this session confident and able to identify the key elements of accessibility testing and armed with tools and techniques to make it fit seamlessly into your current process.
