Homer's Talk

The Four Principles of Accessibility


While many in the design community are aware of inclusivity and accessible design practices, the reasons are still not understood. My talk walks the listener through the WCAG 2.1 and explains how the four principles, collectively referred to as POUR, apply to product design and development. These four principles specifically target areas where users have trouble accessing digital content. The goal is to help product teams understand how to think about and approach accessibility so they can build products that enable independence.
