Web Accessibility Begins at User Persona, with Christine Laikind
October 18, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
In United States, at least 12% of the population has some form of disability. Worldwide, 20% of the population is disabled. To equate it to potential number of visitors, it would be one in five visitors that come to your website may be disabled. Additionally with aging Baby Boomers, and let’s not forget, Generation X with “changing abilities” due to aging, your website may have barriers. With that said, Usability and user experience design significantly overlap with accessibility when “specified users” includes “people with a range of disabilities” and “specified context of use” includes accessibility considerations such as assistive technologies.
The Meetup is free because of our awesome sponsors, however we ask you to please RSVP so we can save a space for you.
Be sure to bring your laptop if possible, and you’re welcome to bring your own lunch if you’d like.
