Pragmatic Accessibility: A How-To Guide for Teams (Google I/O '17) - Deepstash

1. Make sure everybody is onboard

Ideally, the entire team should be onboarded before making a website accessible (product owner, developers, designers). 

It doesn't really work if there is only one person solely responsible for accessibility in an organization since that person will push against the goal of others to deliver fast. 

Make sure that it is a priority to train others during the work day to avoid people not prioritizing learning due to time.

2. Identify critical and secondary user journeys

A critical or primary user journey is a basic flow everybody has to perform in order to use the app.

(E.g. Add an item to the card)

A secondary user journey is a flow only power users can perform.

(E.g. Change your profile avatar)

Identify the user journeys (primary and secondary) of your product to identify the future work to be done on the most important product areas.

Then, apply an accessibility checklist to each step of each user journey. Run through the checklist with every team member.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
