Making Accessibility Approachable

#Accessibility, 508 Compliance, Usability, #WCAG, Americans With Disabilities Act, VPAT - the list goes on and on and more often than not induces yawns from your clients. This isn't their first rodeo - they just want to know you're taking care of the basics to keep them out of trouble. The truth is that navigating the accessibility guidelines doesn't have to be such a headache. In this session, we'll go over the basics of pushing for focus on comprehension over checkboxes and review some examples of common inaccessible #Drupal components / modules that I've gotten tripped up on in the past, and how we've been able to make them work for users with disabilities.

Outside of that, we'll chat briefly about the following:
- Quick introduction to the basics of where accessibility and government work meet
- How to manage your projects with accessibility baked into the process
- When to bring accessibility into the conversation for Product Managers
- Rethinking reporting (operation: No More Yawns)
- VPAT's and how to use them
- Bringing everything together to get the client excited and involved with the work
- What’s our accessible future looks like
