Intro to Agile Accessibility

In a lot of ways, accessibility is talked about and practiced as if it is a hydra dragon. Every time you think you’ve made an improvement, you cut off one head of the accessibility dragon and two heads grow back. In particular, there are a lot of myths out there that you can’t do accessibility in an agile development environment.

A lot of that stems from accessibility being thought of as something you do manually, and also often only as user acceptance testing or usability testing. And while that’s an important part of accessibility, there is much more you can do to integrate accessibility into your agile processes to produce accessible products. 

In this webinar, Deque's CTO, Dylan Barrell, will cover how to practice agile accessibility.
