All About Design for Accessibility

We should design products not just for those like ourselves but also for users who have different abilities. In this course, we will walk you through the process of designing accessible digital products. We survey regulations, best practices and case studies to give you an in-depth view of what’s important and what has to be addressed in ensuring that our design is accessible. Keep in mind that accessibility is not a good-to-have, it is a must and in many countries, a legal requirement.
