The Accessibility Mindset: The Latest Episode of The Testing Show is Up

 Another episode of The Testing Show is now live. As it looks like the embed function works I am going to keep on with this methodology :).

This episode is focusing on "The Accessibility Mindset?" and yes, the question mark is intentional, as in this episode we are specifically asking what it is and how to go about using it. 

As I mentioned in the intro to the show, I think too often Accessibility is limited to making sure a screen reader can navigate a site and to make sure alt tags for images are in place. I think we should be ashamed of ourselves if that is the extent of our involvement, focus, and interest. This is why I was interested in hearing what Aditya Bangari and Riya Sharma had to say about approaching projects not just with Accessibility as a goal in mind, but to do so with a literal "Accessibility Mindset". Along with Accessibility is the complementary ideal of Inclusive Design, where we work towards making sites and services more usable and effective for everyone.
