Accessibility 101

What can I do?

Everyone in IT has a role to play in providing accessible technology.  Whether you spend your day supervising staff, designing killer graphics, hammering out code, managing projects across IT disciplines, or providing user support, you can contribute to the accessibility of your IT shop.

Some IT roles that can influence accessibility include:

  • Leadership/Management
  • Service designers and owners
  • Project managers
  • Graphic/UI designers
  • Web/App developers
  • Content creators
  • Media producers
  • Support staff

Consider other roles in an IT group, such as students, administrators, network technicians and others. How could people in those roles contribute to accessibility efforts?
