How is your company addressing Accessibility?

we've recently taken on a client who has a couple of engineers who have vision issues and/or dexterity issues. it's making us ramp up our accessibility schedule and align with WCAG (accessibility guidelines). definitely doing our best to not get sued so we're committing a lot to making sure everyone can use our products. 

is your company focusing on it at all? and, have you had to address it in your conversations?

I’d recommend aiming to meet Canadian standards for compliance, they are a tad higher than the US requirements. It’ll likely save time going forward.

Definitely agree with this.

It's pretty key, plus the right thing  to do.

we had a blog written about the steps we've taken and are taking in the future to address this - easy to share publicly and seems warm and fuzzy.

Wow, this isn't something that's ever come across my mind so I'm assuming my company is in the same boat as most which is to not address it until it becomes an issue. Probably not the best approach.

But at the same time, this isn't really a conversation I would be privy to at my org so it could be that this has already been addressed and I'm just unaware.

this is really interesting. I do not think that our team has had this as a point of focus at all. 

which is a bummer, but im sure if it ever becomes a problem then they will focus on it. Which, is not the best approach obviously. 

What sort of changes are having to be made?

Falling into WCAG rules and accommodating a lot of product changes, like high contrast themes, keyboard shortcuts, cleaner code. Reduced language to a 5th grade level, just to start.

Hmm... Haven't had this come up more than once, and never heard about it at any town hall, so assuming it's either handled or no one's worried about it.
