Deep Dive: Accessible Components from Design to Development
taught by: Carie Fisher
In this workshop, Carie will walk through the process of creating accessible front-end components from design to development. Throughout the workshop sessions, we will rely on accessibility best practices/guidelines and utilize testing tools and techniques at each step of the product development lifecycle.
While digital accessibility can be difficult or frustrating to many people, it doesn’t have to be. By learning front-end techniques, utilizing targeted accessibility tools, and making small changes to your everyday workflow, you can make the digital world more inclusive — without crushing your creativity or sacrificing your sanity!
Instructor will present virtually.
- Essential accessibility annotations for a smoother design-to-development handoff between teams. An overview of currently available accessible style guides, patterns, and libraries, and how to know what is best for your specific environment.
- How to conduct basic automated, manual, assistive technology (AT), and user tests — and when each technique/tool should be applied in the software development lifecycle.
