situations of digital disabilities aren’t inevitable, we can all act to avoid them. Are you a creator of communication media? Are you participating in the development of a web project or a mobile application? Do you use social networks? You can act! Thanks to this set of personae, you will discover the issues related to the different deficiencies and that are easy to deploy.

    Accessibility Beyond Code Compliance

    Design systems (and pattern libraries within them) codify your organization’s design and coding guidelines in such a way that the software you produce is consistent and the teams working on delivering that software are able to be more efficient because they aren’t having to design and build every interface from scratch. Having a design system that is accessible enables teams to avoid introducing new accessibility bugs in the process of creating bespoke interfaces. It also means finding and fixing an accessibility bug in the design system should fix it in all of the products using that design system. (That last part isn’t always perfect, but I don’t have time to get into that today.)
