In 2016, The Financial Times launched a new version of our website to great success. It broke ground on key areas in which they'd set out to excel, like performance, resilience and usability. But one day, and rather serendipitously, they realized they had largely forgotten about one thing: accessibility.
In this talk, Laura Carvajal will go over how The Financial Times went from being generally oblivious about accessibility to making it a core part of their process across multiple divisions. She'll share the roadblocks they found and the lessons they learned, along with tangible solutions you can integrate them into your own project today, regardless of available time, budget or support.
