Description

Senses Working Overtime: Improving Software Quality Through Accessibility and Inclusive Design

Accessibility makes it possible for those with various disabilities to access information and services. Inclusive Design focuses on making choices so that software and services are usable by as many people as possible. They are distinct but complementary facets of software development and delivery, and they are difficult to add to software after the fact. Making software Accessible using Inclusive Design principles at the start, or as early as possible, makes it easier to develop software that can be used by more people, and allows the development team to deliver better quality, better user experience, and happier users all the way around. In this talk, I will demonstrate principles and processes that you can use to help make Accessibility and Inclusive Design a natural part of your development and testing activities.
