Interactive Accessibility Quiz
This session is a unique way to learn about the accessibility issues people face when online. This one of a kind session asks one simple question.
“What is wrong in terms of accessibility?”
Covering not only compliance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines but readability, usability and emotional accessibility too, you will be amazed how much can be packed into a one-page quiz! And how small things have a potentially big impact! After a short session finding the answers themselves, we will go through the answers together. Spoiler! There are 10 images, 11 answers but many more than 11 things wrong.
Your Quiz Host is Adrian ‘Ady’ Stokes. A long-time accessibility advocate with over 20 years’ experience in Audit, Business Intelligence and Test roles. With a thirst for learning and continually improving he’s always looking for ways to share information from his blog to a monthly newsletter and global quality initiatives at work. He is a great believer in community and helps the great one in Leeds by co-organising the Ministry of Testing Meetup. WebAIM found that 98% of 1 million home pages failed WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) in August 2019. We can and must do better!
“I believe accessibility is fundamental to applications and greatly undervalued causing many problems for lots of users. I’m trying to spread the message that accessibility isn’t about disability, it’s about inclusion!”
