We will start the session with an introduction into inclusive design. We will be exploring varying accessibility personas such as motor impairments like arthritis, visual loss or colour blindness and cognitive examples of dyslexia or autism.
We'll then move into our case study, what we have learnt in our accessibility journey at Auto Trader, how we challenged the 'norm' and in doing so, helped bring about change that's lead - indirectly - to the creation of a core pattern library; fledgling accessibility testing to new projects; a new careers site designed, built and audited to WCAG 2.0 AA, as well as running awareness workshops: all to ensure accessibility is at the core of design and development across all of Auto Trader.
Finally, we will invite workshop attendees to participate in some live accessibility testing. Users will be grouped to various impairments (motor/visual/cognitive), with the aim for them to complete tasks and in doing so empathise will real world users.
