How to set up an accessibility program in an imperfect world

Speaker: Larissa Günther (Thoughtworks)


12:10 - 12:50 pm CEST, September 22, 2022


Most accessibility guidelines and training advise you to integrate accessibility from the start into your project or assign all forces to making products accessible. But most of us are not living in a perfect world where we can just start from scratch and bake in accessibility right from the beginning with a team full of accessibility experts. How do we integrate accessibility in products that have already been in development for months or even years without considering accessibility? How do we get accessibility prioritized in projects with high delivery pressure? In this talk, Larissa shares learnings and challenges from getting accessibility onto a moving train of in-progress software development.
