Speaking at a UX Conference

I had the pleasure of being a speaker on the 7th edition of “Dark side of the UX”. It's a UX conference that takes place annually.

 

The conference’s theme last year was “Your journey starts here”. It was directed mostly to young, aspiring designers – to help them kick off their design voyage.

That's me!

My keynote topic was

ACCESSIBILITY IS NOT HARD

Huh??? 

The topic of my presentation was “Accessibility is not hard”.

 

A sentence, which is not... umm... true...

Or is it??? Well, if someone is hearing about the topic for the first time, I want them to love the subject, not be afraid of it from the start! Let them have some optimism, before they dive in the documentation, right?

Ekhm, anyways

I explained the fundamentals of inclusive design, why it’s so important, and of course – how to do it.

I know WCAG in and out by now, but getting there took quite a bit of time and effort.

I wanted the young designers to have a different start.

I wanted them to understand just two things:

First - that learning the basics of accessibility is paramount.

Second – that it doesn’t have to be hard!

8 Simple Accessibility Guidelines

I also created 8 simple accessibility guidelines for UX designers based on my knowledge and experience. I wanted them to be precise and practical, so that designers can easily incorporate them into their work and greatly improve the accessibility of their designs.

 I like to think that – while developing a fully accessible product may be difficult at times – inclusive design doesn’t have to be strenuous at all.

Because you don’t have to know everything about accessibility to improve it in your designs.

Sharing my knowledge in a condensed, easy to digest form, is really fun to do.

And the thought that more and more designers incorporate accessibility

into their work makes me super thrilled.

Go ally! 🦾
