Building products that offer inclusive experiences is a known challenge to the community of designers and developers. PatternFly is an opensource design system with an initiative to provide UI components that follow accessibility best practices that are tested by users and experts.
In this session, we will discuss how incorporating user research can benefit consumers and also inform documentation that is made available to the community. We will also demo some of the common accessibility challenges users can face navigating the Web and simple steps you can take to drastically improve the usability of your application with only a few tweaks. The participants will learn how easy it is to develop inclusive experiences using simple but essential accessibility guidelines from PatternFly.
