Accessibility can sometimes become an unfortunate afterthought as we race to meet deadlines and search for tips and tricks to meet client demands. We can cause problems for keyboard or screenreader users, and leave our products fragile and potentially vulnerable to legal action from people who find themselves locked out due to their accessibility needs. How can we get better?
One way to find out would be by joining our live stream with Heydon Pickering who will be sharing insights about the relationship between accessibility and design systems, and exploring how to build accessible components, and why he decided to write a book on accessible interface design patterns.
Live Stream On Inclusive Design: Nov 7, 5:00 PM GMT
The session will start today, November 7, at 6:00 PM Berlin time (12:00 PM New York time) — broadcasted live below! (If the video doesn’t play, you can also watch on YouTube.)
For a few years now, we’ve been running live sessions with respected professionals on Smashing TV — our video channel for our dear Smashing Members, who support our little team and our little adventures every month.
Starting from November, we’d like to try out something new. As the webinars have always been about sharing lessons learned with the community, we’d like to open them up to everybody, with Members having a chance to ask questions about the projects and their work right after the session.
