As a design exercise, I re-envisioned the sign-up flow of a popular vacation rentals website to make it accessible. In my talk, I will walk the audience through the steps I took to address accessibility. My goal is to educate user experience professionals on concrete steps they can take to create accessible interfaces. There is an enormous amount of literature on why accessibility matters and general guidelines around accessibility, but I want to focus on the nitty-gritty of a common design pattern in order to provide actionable ideas that can be implemented in real world scenarios. Ideally, attendees will already be interested in and have a basic understanding of accessibility; however, this talk will be understandable to those who are new to the discipline.
I gave a shorter version of this talk at the Accessibility Meetup Group's December Lightning Talks event (https://www.meetup.com/a11ychi/events/256749111/), and there is a link provided below. My presentation begins at the 1:02 mark.
