Four Core Skills to Simplify Your Digital A11y

Orange County 3-4  

While providing our clients with accessibility reviews and training, we stumbled upon an idea that has begun to catch fire throughout the accessibility space. Compliance-level accessibility training and assessments are overwhelming and rarely lead to change. This led us to start thinking about how we could address this problem. Our solution is to focus less on checking the boxes for compliance and instead focus on fixing the issues that are more attainable for most content creators, at least at the beginning. Our goal is to ensure our clients understand that they don't need to do everything, everywhere, all at once. By narrowing their focus to our "Four Core Skills", we set them up with the basic foundation they need to address low-effort, high-impact, issues first. This helps reduce overwhelm by limiting the number of things they need to immediately address. This presentation explains each of the Four Core Skills and provides examples and techniques on how to start putting them into practice, today. No WCAG required!
