•Inclusive process - who is missing from the “table”?- including diverse perspectives, recruiting participation
•Consider the broader context and connected systems - intervention into complex adaptive systems- strive for virtuous cycles and benefit for all
Who are the stakeholders?
Who are we designing for?
Future Friendly Approach…
•“Best before date” if you become technology specific
•Things that don’t change referenced in slow to change layer, things that can be changed more quickly can reference the specific technologies in flux
•Continuous improvement required
•Accessibility away from legal to design
•Turn liability to opportunity
•Responsive feedback loops
•Awareness of accessibilty
•One way but not the only way
•Agility, cycles of update, trusted testers
•The user not the technology
•Users don’t evolve as fast as technology
Graphical representation (descriptive text below)
A graphic representation of an Accessibility Ecosystem made up of three concentric circles: 1. Regulation: regulate overall process; functional accessibility requirements that remain constant, 2. Trusted Regulated Authority has the power to qualify candidate new methods of meeting regulatory functional accessibility requirements and ensure qualifying methods have accompanying tools and resources to employ methods; retire outdated methods, 3. Curated Open Repository to Support Compliance: tools; resources; exemplars; reviews; training; research and guidance. Individuals with Disabilities co-design, guide and contribute to these processes. Obligated organizations propose new methods to Trusted Regulated Authority and contribute resources to Curated Open Repository to Support Compliance. The public contributes to the Curated Open Repository by monitoring and reporting, gaps can then be addressed in training. Government fills resource pool gaps through procurement. Individuals with disabilities are engaged in co-design of Regulation section, guiding Trusted Regulated Authority, and contributing to all obligated organizations.
