Accessibility resources for designers

accessibility resources

There are 7.4 billion people in the world, yet we often make things that are easy for some people to use but difficult for everyone else.

Why Accessibility is important for designers

As designers, it is our responsibility to think about how we might design more inclusively for people of all abilities and to reflect the true diversity of the human race.

Here is my list of useful resources for designing inclusively for all 7.4 billion of us on our planet 🙂

This list will be updated as I find new resources, and please do comment with things that you feel could be added to this list.
