SXSW24 is just around the corner, and we’ve got an inspiring panel proposal that needs your support! O3 is excited to share our perspective with the audience and spread the word about creating experiences that make a difference.
Embracing accessibility & inclusion
In a world where the web, apps, and online services shape our daily lives, ensuring equal access to information has never been more crucial. Our proposed panel, “The AI we should talk about is Accessibility & Inclusion,” shines a light on the transformation from ‘mobile first’ to ‘digital accessibility first.’ This shift emphasizes not just designing for everyone, but creating technology that empowers and includes everyone.
The panel will journey from the ‘mobile first’ mindset of the past to the imperative of a ‘digital accessibility first’ approach. In an era where our reliance on technology is undeniable, ensuring equal access to information for all is key. This session uncovers the transformative power of digital accessibility, exploring its role in elevating brands, expanding customer bases, and ultimately enhancing user experiences. Discover how to navigate the accessibility landscape and gain an understanding of its basics, all while learning simple and meaningful steps to assess the accessibility health of your digital assets. As we embrace the challenges of digital accessibility, we unlock a world of creative ideas, drive innovation, and foster a culture that thrives on adaptability and problem-solving.
Why this matters
Our panel explores how embracing a ‘digital accessibility first’ approach can elevate brands, broaden customer bases, and enhance user experiences. This is not just about ticking boxes; it’s about creating a welcoming digital space for all.
The human-centered approach
By putting accessibility at the forefront, we foster a culture of empathy, innovation, and creative problem solving. This benefits not only the individuals using our technology but also our business growth.
Impact beyond technology
We’re not just discussing codes and interfaces. We’re discussing social justice, disability rights, human-centered design, and the pivotal role technology plays in these realms.
