Stop Trying to Avoid Losing and Start Winning: How BS 8878 Reframes the Accessibility Question

A session at IWMW 2013 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Thursday 27th June, 2013

9:00am to 10:45am (GMT)

Accessibility is all about checklists, HTML and assistive technologies. Its only impact on User Experience is to stop designers from being creative.

Sometimes, you'd be forgiven for thinking that those two statements are true.

Professor Jonathan Hassell has spent much of his last three years disproving them, both at the BBC and in other organisations, and coding how accessibility should be seen in the context of user-centred design into BS 8878.

In this presentation, he'll show how BS 8878 provides a framework for helping web professionals embed accessibility considerations into their work, how it can empower and free them from onerous constraints, how it can challenge them to be more creative, and how the results can benefit all users, not just those with disabilities.
