SPONSOR: Launchpad iOS: An Accessibility Journey

In an ideal world, accessibility is something that all developers build into their software early on. However, development is rarely ideal, and for whatever reason, you may find yourself with an already shipped product that has poor or non-existent accessibility. That was the situation we found ourselves in with Launchpad iOS. It can seem like a huge task to fix, and difficult to know where to start if you don’t have any experience with accessibility.

Join us as we recount our lessons learned while retrofitting accessibility into Launchpad iOS after its release. We will discuss practical steps you can take to get started: gaining empathy for accessible users; how to make accessibility part of your process; and why making accessible users first-class citizens of your software improves the experience for everyone.

Lastly, we’ll talk about why you (yes, you!) should be the person on your team to take action now. It’s never too late to make your software accessible.
