How to test Accessibility and why this applies to everyone
Many companies have a stereotype: "accessibility testing is about people with disabilities, but our target audience does not have disabilities." However, the availability of web content is about each of us. Someone has a broken arm and is forced to use only the keyboard, someone is working next to the window, the sun shines on his monitor, and it is difficult to see the non-contrast interface, someone is working with a slow Internet connection, and pictures do not load in the app at all. The desire to make the interface accessible is inextricably linked with usability, so that compliance with the standard will make each user's work more comfortable. And for business, this means that customers will become more loyal to the product and less likely to leave for competitors.
In the presentation I will tell you:
- what the W3C recommends for software accessibility
- how these recommendations help users
- how to test the accessibility of web content
