• Global Accessibility Awareness Event! - UX4Change

    Another fantastic night last night with UX4Change kicking off Global Accessibility Awareness Day yesterday!

    A huge thank you to everyone who came out to support and also a massive thanks to the speakers, Phil Robertson, Matteo Belfiore, Tim Hardwood and Rochelle Dancel!

    Phil kicked off the evening with a great talk on tackling the current problems of accessibility within tech, presenting various assistive tools that are available, and mentioning the different approaches we can take to help others with accessibility limitations!

    Matteo then followed with an interesting talk from a developers perspective, demonstrating how to write accessibility semantic and accessible code for the web.

    Tim Hardwood shared his thoughts on how to create products and services that are useful and usable for all. Bringing awareness to users who are not classical defined in the user ability requirements, with his key concept being "Make it a philosophy not a task'!

    Rochelle rounded off the night with an amazing piece from an organisational perspective, discussing how large organisations can be good allies in ensuring accessibility and vulnerable customers are at the front of mind.

    Special thanks to Naomi Easson and Sandra Gonzalez for Co-organisation this really inspiring event.

    Keep an eye out on our Design board on the Community Platform for updates about future events. We have some exciting things coming up this year with Facebook, BT and Monese!😁🚀🙌
