Description
Exploring concept of auditing, documenting, and disclosing the accessibility and standards conformance of atomic UI components, content, and authoring tools which are intended for third party designers and developers to use in creating their own applications and content. When context and holistic design is pivotal to Accessibility, the foundation of Usability is qualitative interrelation and interactions between component parts of a UI, and standards conformance is predicated on whole User Experiences, how does one discuss a collection of components built and tested under conditions where those details are absent? Can an Accessibility Conformance Report be written for a product which has not yet even been storyboarded based entirely on the collection of controls, components, and partial templates which could be used to construct the final product? The short answer, obviously, is “No”, but an exploration of what is possible to determine, how we go about testing with hypothetical consumers in mind, and how we can discuss that information with those consumers (both directly and second hand through documentation) should prove to be enlightening and, hopefully, a little bit thought provoking about our own impact on creating a more accessible world.
