  • In a lot of ways, accessibility is talked about and practiced as if it is a hydra dragon. Every time you think you’ve made an improvement, you cut off one head of the accessibility dragon and two heads grow back. In particular, there are a lot of myths out there that you can’t do accessibility in an agile development environment.
  • A lot of that stems from accessibility being thought of something you do manually, and also often only as user acceptance testing or usability testing. And while that’s an important part of accessibility, there is much more you can do to integrate accessibility into your automated agile processes.
  • In this presentation, we will cover automated accessibility practices for the agile tester and how accessibility can integrate into your company's agile transformation.
