Testing websites for accessibility can be a daunting undertaking if it’s not something you’re familiar with. The WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines can be hard to follow. But actually, many aspects of digital accessibility are not that complicated.
In this talk I move away from the impenetrable guidelines, and introduce a simpler series of yes/no questions that anyone can answer about their own website. In the time available it can’t cover every single potential accessibility problem, but instead I focus on some of the most common, and most serious accessibility issues that I’ve found when reviewing websites. Where possible, I’ll also talk about how you can fix any issues founds.
