ARENA - Accessibility
About this 8th edition
Most products and services nowadays are unfortunately not designed for all users. Is your door wide enough for a baby stroller? Is the readability on your website good enough for people with visual impairments? Is your office easily reachable for someone with a broken leg? All these problems can easily be solved if we tackle them from the start and not handle them as an afterthought. If we don't take accessibility into consideration from the beginning, it impacts our organisation negatively and it’s very costly to implement later. How can we integrate these accessibility guidelines as part of our workflow?
