Inclusive User Experience
To deliver inclusive and authentic user experience we need to ensure our designs are accessible. This workshop will share many of the techniques we apply as we move around the design lifecycle. As designers, we can apply variety of techniques to ensure we deliver a design experience that provides an equivalent level of quality to as many people as possible. For example, right from the sketching stage you can check the keyboard access will follow the visual order, and whether screen readers need some hidden elements to understand your page.
“Inclusive User Experience” is putting digital liberty as a number one priority.
