To design accessible interactions and a strategy in the design and Front-End development of Flint Bishop International Airport’s new website.
In addition to developing cross-browser experiences, I aimed to make these sites as accessible as possible to promote discoverability, user retention, and potential audience. I regularly advocated for AE’s creations to be accessible and usable. I presented at conferences to spread a vision of Universal and Inclusive Design and Development across Michigan.
In developing the FNT Airport site, I worked to foster a recognization and advocation for all people, of all abilities, to my fellow developers and all stakeholders through presenting on the WCAG standard and leading a strategy I developed to create accessible interactions; e.g., the navigation.
Through my strategy, the entire development team aimed for maximum accessibility within the stakeholders' (client & leadership) vision. I led this effort and focused on a keyboard & screen-reader friendly navigation as per the WCAG 2.0 web app menu/menuitem guidelines.
