About the session
On first impression, the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) looks dry, dull, and a right old chore.
Roger will be sharing what he's learned on his own accessibility journey and wants to persuade you to see past that – to recognize the VPAT as an eye-opening opportunity for an enjoyable and fruitful challenge that carries an exciting opportunity to advocate for improved accessibility in your organization.
With the right mindset, once you've done an accessibility audit for one product, you'll want to do it for all of them!
- What are VPATs, and how they differ
- What you should know before doing an accessibility audit
- Why the language you use in the VPAT matters
- Analyzing the VPAT results and understanding what 'good' looks like
- And most importantly… why completing the VPAT is not the goal here
