Three small things you can do to help a lot of people
Suddenly, many more people are working, learning, and communicating online. How can we help, and what should we do first? As a “digital curb-cut”, website accessibility helps far more people than we might expect. This presentation will discuss *why* improving digital accessibility is urgently important, and offer three key accessibility improvements that will have maximum impact for your users.

We’ll conclude with a brief discussion of how to build a process scaffold of accessibility thinking in design, testing, and reporting that will help you work towards a sustainable accessibility improvement workflow in your organization.

You’ll learn how to:

Identify the value digital accessibility improvements can offer your users.
Prioritize which improvements to make first.
Fit the pieces together to begin building a sustainable process for ongoing accessibility improvement in your digital products.


This beginner-level talk is best for those with some responsibility for drafting or overseeing digital accessibility work in their organization.
