In May 2016, six Vox Media team members gathered in Washington, D.C., for two days to figure out how to approach accessibility on a company-wide scale. Over the course of two days, we documented role-specific best practices and how each team member could implement them into their actual work.
In July 2016, we picked up the project again at our annual hack week, Vax. We sketched, wireframed, and built a website with our documentation that also serves as a tool to help teams consider accessibility at each stage of a project.
As a part of this project, we also made our guidelines open source. If you have ideas and would like to make this project better, contribute to the project on Github.
