The Knowledge and How to Get It
- Date & Time
Wednesday, March 15, 2023 - 4:20 PM PST
Platinum 5 (VISPERO)
When TPGi set up a team of people dedicated to collecting and disseminating information about digital accessibility, we looked at many models.
One of the most interesting had nothing to do with the digital world and even less to do with accessibility for people with disabilities.
For 150 years, London taxi drivers have had to learn The Knowledge, the only way to get licensed to drive the city's famous Black Cabs.
After several years familiarizing themselves with 25,000 streets, they must pass “the hardest test in the world”, verbally describing fiendish routes from memory.
Today, GPS is used by the mini-cabs that compete with the Black Cabs. Yet the Black Cabs persist with The Knowledge and they continue to thrive. Why? Because there's more to knowledge than just data.
TPGi has established a Knowledge Center with a team dedicated to building and maintaining the digital accessibility knowledge that auditors, testers, engineers, designers, developers, and clients rely on.
We produce and constantly review articles, design patterns, recommendations for automated and manual testing results, training modules, technical solutions, best practices and contextual guidance related to digital accessibility.
Our team of highly experienced digital accessibility professionals puts the focus not just on data, or even information - we share knowledge about digital accessibility that is practical, reliable and usable in the real world.
This talk will tell you how.
