Accessibility in UX Design
Wed 7 December 2016, 18:30 – 19:45 GMT
The last talk of this year will look at the UX process behind designing and developing the website of NADP UK (National Association of Disability Practitioners) who provide services for disabled students in the tertiary education sector. In her talk, Rachel will discuss the importance of testing your work with real users and pivoting and evolving designs to meet the needs of varied audiences, such as disabilities like visual, mobility or cognitive impairments and more. She will also be talking about how her work has evolved since she started her own business as a result of the rise of entrepreneurship in business owners.
