Main-stage talk

Accessibility is usability

Say “accessibility” to many people and their first thought will be: “screen readers.” But content design can make a big difference to your audience—whether they use screen readers or not, and whether they have an impairment or not.

Content accessibility is not all about screen readers and alt text. It is about giving your audience what they need, in the way they need it, on a channel they are on, in a format that works for them. We need to understand our audiences—all of them—if we are going to build an inclusive web.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to:

  • Debunk accessibility and disability myths.
  • Help your team understand accessibility through impairments they can relate to.
  • Take your organization a step closer to opening up your content.

Who should attend: This session will be useful to anybody who is hoping to take a broader view of accessibility and usability, and to use this view to improve their content strategy work.
