The Accessibility Playbook: a beginner's guide to web accessibility
In this workshop we will walk through the newly released* Thoughtworks Accessibility Playbook, and use concrete examples to give participants hands-on experience in doing Accessibility Assessments and envisioning next steps. Participants are welcome to bring their own products or use the examples we provide in the workshop. They will receive a copy of the Accessibility Playbook (digital or in print tbd), with a list of resources for further exploration and practice.
