We’ve seen a real shift in attitudes towards accessibility in the last 18 months. Government has moved past a tick-box mentality towards a user-centred approach. In turn, private sector organisations have embraced inclusive design practices in their business strategies. Accessibility is becoming part of the process, rather than an afterthought.
The proof is in the work we’re doing. We’re developing Accessibility Implementation Plans that have touch points across entire organisations; we’re conducting Design Reviews to ensure accessibility is built-in from the start; we’re delivering User-Based Evaluations to ensure practical usability; and we’re educating hundreds of designers, developers and content authors through our training. We’re very proud to be at the forefront of such positive change.
