10 Accessibility Problems that Affect Everyone

We are happy to announce that Lucy Greco will be our special guest for this month's meeting.

In the accessibility community, the big secret is that fixing the accessibility of your application or web site will make all of your users much happier, not just the users that require accessibility. Many of the problems that will completely block a person with a disability from using your product are the same frustrations the rest of your users also experience.

In this talk, Lucy will cover ten common frustrations that everyone has with web sites and applications and explain how to fix them and make all of your users happier. From blasting audio as soon as the page opens, to poor layout making information harder to find. As developers, by thinking about the accessibility for users with disabilities at the beginning of creating software solutions, you can solve these problems for everyone and make for a more inclusive world.
