Accessibility of a Web3 Driven Design System

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT  
Grand JK  

In this presentation, we will explore the Coinbase Design System (CDS) and highlight the significant impact of accessibility remediation efforts when we prioritize a design system with high adoption. By focusing on accessibility from the ground up, we ensure that the building blocks provided to product teams are accessible by default and offer guidance for accessible consumption.

One of the key components we will discuss is the Price Chart component, which exemplifies our commitment to accessibility. We will delve into the design principles and considerations that make this component inclusive and usable for all users. By incorporating accessibility features such as proper color contrast, keyboard navigation, and screen reader compatibility, we ensure that the Price Chart component is accessible to everyone. Furthermore, we will emphasize the importance of accessibility in the context of a design system. When the majority of product teams utilize the CDS, accessibility remediation efforts become even more impactful. By providing accessible design patterns, guidelines, and documentation within the design system, we empower product teams to create accessible experiences from the start. This approach not only saves time and resources but also ensures that accessibility is ingrained in the design and development process.

Throughout the presentation, we will showcase examples of how accessibility is integrated into a variety of components in the design system.
