Being a Web A11y

The pandemic made our lives much more reliant on apps and websites to help us stay connected and access essential services to keep us safe. Yet much of the web is inaccessible for many people with a spectrum of disabilities. How do we as designers ensure that anyone can enjoy & participate in the internet fully?

Ahead of an upcoming class on web accessibility, Dan Bivins joins us in discussion about what is the state of the web today and answers our urgent questions about what it takes to make the web more inclusive.


ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Dan Bivins designs, writes a little bit of front-end code, and spends time helping designers and developers create more inclusive digital products. He has worked across various industries but currently works with Ad Hoc, building digital services that help the federal government better serve people. Outside of working, Dan has (strangely) become an avid trail runner and also is involved in a couple very different musical projects.

ABOUT OUR SUBJECT MATTERS SERIES
