DESCRIPTIONYour website needs to be accessible. You worked on it for some time to make it that way. You probably felt that the process, especially in an Agile environment, didn't feel right. Why? This presentation addresses the misconceptions about accessibility based upon analysis of WCAG 2.0 criteria in Agile front-end development. From that analysis a new way of approach toward accessibility arose: A211y, under development at Optum Technology (UnitedHealth Group). This presentation is about insights and ways to improve both existing processes and outcomes and moving beyond "the basics." Bill has been UI/UX/IX Designer/Developer for over 30 years with extensive work in medical devices (13 yr.), health plans & wellness (12 yrs.) as well as a "double dotcom survivor." For the past 12 years he has worked on accessibility and also been a member of UxPA-MN. He became a UX/IX Designer in the Interactive Design Services group of Optum Technology (UHG) in 2010 and been focused solely on accessibility for the past year.
