Accessibility Education

Learn about assistive technology from the experts! Plan these sessions with the purpose of learning about each assistive technology type. How they work, common pain points when navigating online, and other user preferences.
 
Build an internal resource library, sharing the video recordings with your colleagues. This will help educate and spread accessibility awareness within your organization!

Get started with this recommended request combination: 

  • A User Interview with a screen reader user
  • A User Interview with a screen magnification user
  • A User Interview with an alternative navigation user
