Responsibility by role

Accessibility is at the core of our product development process and everyone has a responsibility.

The following is a short-list of our accessibility responsibilities.

  • Product management: accessibility is in scope for every sprint, plan for it
  • Content: craft descriptive labels and account for translation
  • Visual design: ensure colours meet the minimum colour contrast ratio
  • Interaction: prescribe the keyboard interaction and provide focus states
  • Development: use semantic HTML mark-up
  • QA: ensure robust coverage and run testing on a regular basis
