10 Quick Wins to Make your Website More Accessible

Thursday, 09 February 2023 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Good usability is good accessibility.

It is legally required to meet a certain level of web accessibility, but it makes good business sense too: at least 26% of US adults report some kind of disability, and many of those people will need accessibly-designed web experiences.

From over 4,200 hours of in-depth UX research and usability studies, Sandstorm has distilled decades’ worth of research and accessibility best practices into our top 10 list — accessibility and usability considerations every organization can learn from and apply to their digital experiences.

This session will help you to understand the major accessibility issues and pitfalls, ranging from menus, carousels, color, hover states, discoverable links, etc. We’ll use the AMA Chicago website as our guide, identifying key accessibility issues, but more importantly, providing actionable accessibility and usability tips every organization can learn from and apply immediately to their digital experiences.

Three takeaways you can apply:

  • The most common accessibility issues and where most organizations fall on the spectrum.
  • Strategies for addressing common accessibility issues, i.e., menus, carousels, color, hover states, discoverable links, and more.
  • Accessibility training strategies and tactics that can be implemented to ensure ongoing accessibility compliance.
