Organizations want scalability, consistency, and durability when it comes to accessibility in their digital products. This requires alignment of people, policies, and processes. To meet these needs, accounting for accessibility in multiple roles is critical. This necessitates integrating accessibility information at various points.

Technical teams need layers of support for digital products to be accessible. This session will highlight tools that help create accessible products. We will cover product management, UX design, web development, and content authoring. The aim is to embed accessibility from the outset, backed by real-world examples.

At the product level, we'll explore the value of inclusive personas and UX research, showcasing the positive impacts of accounting for accessibility from the start. We'll also delve into leveraging design artifacts to ensure accessibility during UX design.

Recognizing that notes in artifacts are just a starting point for developers, we'll explore how accessibility fits into design systems and pattern libraries. Then we will focus on content authors and creators, who play a pivotal role in our websites and their accessibility. We'll examine how brand management tools can highlight and reinforce accessibility for this audience.
