We’ve seen a rise of ‘accessibility’ plugins where you can simply click a button and your website is magically accessible. These are the perfect example of accessibility as an afterthought. They may be a quick fix to contrast or text size failures. Ultimately, if a plugin needs to be added to fix these, there’s a good chance your core brand is an accessibility failure. Accessibility should be carefully considered from start to finish and implemented with intention.

In this lightning talk, Matt will provide insights on how to build accessible website experiences, some of the most common WCAG 2 failures and how to carefully consider and implement accessibility features rather than an afterthought that is shoehorned in.
