Accessibility training will not save you

I cannot pinpoint the source of this misconception, it could have been a vendor, or long-lost blog post, or one of the many webinars I attended in my early days as a program lead. Regardless of the source, I operated under the wild misconception that all I needed to do was train my teams to do accessibility. Developers, QAs, designers, all they needed was training!


This model does not work. Especially for an organization with multiple products, multiple platforms, and multiple development teams.

Accessibility is so much more complicated than can be summarised in a mere training. It requires experts, capable programmers, users who actually require said accessbility, and so much more. It’s also an ongoing process – it’s not a static “train once, use everywhere” kind of deal.
