Session Description

What are the best resources to actually understand what’s needed to make a website accessible? How do you know what you can “ignore”?

Perceivable, operable, understandable, robust. Sounds good, right? But what does that actually mean? As a designer, what do you need to know? A content writer, a developer. What parts are important to know at what times? Are there other ways to organize these guidelines to better represent the different parts of website building, rather than through these principles that drive the WCAG?

We’ll dive into some tools that help us understand these guidelines, and how we can think about these concepts in ways that are a little easier to understand.
