With Global Accessibility Awareness Day hot on our heels (May 19) we’ve decided to do something fun.
We’re going to do an Accessibility review of a well-known site – and you get to nominate it.
Note: There is no time commitment required if your nominated site is chosen – our team of experts will do all the work!
Credit for the idea goes to @Dean and we’ll be working with his team at AssistiveWare to pull this thing together.
- The philosophy behind this is to demonstrate that improving accessibility benefits usability in general, and that accessibility isn’t an add-on.
- We’ll conduct some collaborative and practical activities around usability (and accessibility) to learn from each other (and the experts)
How it will work:
- You (our community) get to nominate websites that have usability issues. Make them well-known, larger brands (rather than small businesses which might feel picked on
- We’ll select 2 or 3 great examples to tear down.
- As a community we’ll share observations about poor usability
- Then we’ll involve the experts (we’re thinking the amazing Derek Featherstone) in the discussion
- We’ll write up the findings into a case study to publish on the AssistiveWare blog
Let’s get started!
