Readability & Web: Let’s build great inclusive projects

Reading is not an easy thing. Even if we are used to having our eyes going through an important quantity of content every day, this action still requires a lot of energy and mechanisms in our head. And it is even more complex for people with reading or cognitive impairments.

The reading experience is highly dependent of the medium and the context.

Unfortunately, our bright displays are definitely not our best allies to help us read more efficiently.

Luckily for all our users and visitors, there is a lot of small improvements and tips every designer, content-writer and developer can do in a project to improve the life all of our users.

Let see together how reading on screen works for our eyes and our brain, then we will find together ways to help people with reading impairments and/or limited attention span to have a better access to our content.

Using accessibility as a bridge between design & development

Web Accessibility is a team effort, but too often it is just viewed as a technical requirement relying only on the engineering team.

Unfortunately, you cannot deliver an accessible experience if the design and the project itself was not prepared for it.

In my last projects, I tried to use Web accessibility as a bridge between design & development and it worked.

New workflows, new deliverables, new rituals: focusing on making an accessible platform allowed my teams to abolish every wall between each specialties.

Let’s discuss together how we were able to do it and how we documented accessibility and shared accountability between PO, designers and engineers.
