Designing for accessibility means that millions more users can effectively use your products & services. And while UX research is being conducted remotely, now is the perfect time to meet these users where they are, to gain accessibility insights that can enhance product development for everyone.
This webinar is designed as an introduction to help you start your accessibility research journey. From taking first steps & including an accessibility evaluation into your current research process, to navigating the practical logistics you should consider when conducting in-depth remote studies.
By being mindful of accessibility at every step of the UX journey, you can positively impact product development for your entire user population, while also avoiding added development and design costs fixing issues later on.

- How to begin accessibility research
- Best practices when conducting in-depth accessibility studies
