This time we are going to treat a topic that often is forgotten but it should be taken in consideration more often: accessibility!

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