All user experience (UX) professionals should have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the issues involved in designing for accessibility because accommodating the needs of people with disabilities can enhance the experience for all users. Since full accessibility compliance reviews can be technical, time consuming, and expensive, it would save resources and improve the overall user experience to ensure that accessibility was incorporated at an earlier stage of development. UX professionals should be able to identify and prevent the most common and easily avoidable accessibility issues as part of their more broad-ranging UX design and evaluation methods. This presentation will help UX professionals learn to identify and address common web accessibility issues so that the online products they design and evaluate will be usable for the widest possible audience. We will cover common issues that can pose accessibility problems, discuss some tools for identifying such problems, and strategies for mitigation.
