New to A11y
Billy Gregory has a talk about a concept called Some Users’ Experience, or #SUX. That’s what happens when the user experience fails to consider all users. It’s a great talk and a catchy way to think about how to involve more users in the experiences of what we design.
In last week’s issue, I included a link to part three of David Sloan’s “Think like an accessible UX researcher” series, but misidentified it as a press release. It’s a blog post, and I’ve included it again this week with the correction.
