Part I: Awareness is everything
Here in part one, we’ll outline how designers and developers can increase their own awareness around accessibility issues by checking assumptions around users, use cases, and use contexts. By setting out to gain a more nuanced understanding of users’ needs, we can move towards technologies that serve the largest, most diverse audience.
- What exactly is global accessibility? And what does it have to do with design?
- Learn about global user communities and how they use technology
- Be mindful about representing users inclusively
- Accommodate different levels of literacy and many different languages
- Empower your users when it comes to privacy, safety, and security
Part II: Context matters
Here in part two, they’ll explore why it’s critical to consider logistics—like network cost and reliability, different generations and models of devices, and accessibility settings during the design process, and how understanding those broader factors will expand your app’s usability and usefulness.
- Build greater user experiences for modest devices
- Ensure that your app functions seamlessly in intermittent networks––and when offline
- Keep usage costs low
- Treat accessibility settings as critical, not just as a checklist
Part III: Be inclusive by default
Learn how designers and developers can make tactical UX decisions to create universally inclusive apps.
- Consider environmental contrasts like sun and shade
- Color has meaning—use it wisely
- Design for various screen conditions and input abilities
- Go big
