IBM Accessibility Toolkit 2.0

ui/ux 2021

providing tools and guidance to help people, especially
designers, understand how they can handoff accessible
designs for implementation, and why accessibility matters

through multiple user feedback sessions on the existing toolkit,
three key insights surfaced that needed to be addressed:

1. designers prefer visuals over text
2. designers have a hard time digesting technical guidance 
3. designers want guidance in their work environment

these insights led to the following deliverables:

1. 157 visual examples created to pair with text

2. reduced and simplified guidance from 121 to 54 accordion topics

3. an accessibility kit with tasks, bite-sized guidance, and handoff assets
