This year’s World Usability Day theme is “Design for Good or Evil”. Accessibility is a key foundation for design for good. If accessibility is not taken into account during the design process then chances are you may have some aspect of evil in your design – even if unintended.
Overlapping with World Usability Day this year is the ICT Accessibility Testing Symposium (11/5 – 11/8). The symposium has many great talks and workshops on how to make sure accessibility is built into your product design and development process.
