A Product Leader’s Guide To Accessibility and AODA

As a digital leader operating a business out of Ontario or Canada you’ve most definitely heard of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, or AODA.

We’ve worked on dozens of accessibility projects over the years, and have helped nonprofits, associations, businesses, and regulated industries navigate the tricky waters of accessibility compliance.

We are excited to launch our five-part series on Product Leader’s Guide To Accessibility & AODA with  Simone Abel - Director of Digital Strategy at Enginess. Over the next couple of weeks, we will post several articles sharing the best practices and key recommendations around implementing accessibility and AODA with your project.

A Product Leader’s Guide To Accessibility & AODA

From a morals and ethics perspective, there’s no doubt that making a continuous and conscientious effort to design and deliver accessibility compliant digital products and web applications is a good thing. As we’ll see, it not only brings the value of your digital service to more people, but it genuinely creates a better experience for those you serve, regardless of their level of ability.

For business owners and project sponsors however, it’s often difficult to know the difference between ADA, AODA, and WCAG 2.0 and what standard they are required to, or desire to, meet, let alone how to properly achieve that standard during planning, design, development, testing and post-launch periods.

Over the years, we’ve picked up plenty of tricks to help accelerate projects and deliver a positive outcome to digital leaders, organization leaders, and end-users. And now we’ve condensed those years of learning in this ebook, jammed with actionable advice to help you execute your own project where accessibility is a requirement.

In many organizations’ digital strategy roadmap, accessibility is an important priority. In this ebook, we’re going to deep dive into this single line item on a digital project, and cover the entire “accessibility-in-mind” lifecycle within your project.
