Atomic Talk Title: Beyond compliance: Shifting perspective to exceptional user experience


Accessibility and usability are often measured by the standards for meeting the compliance. Many teams and organizations strive to meet the mere compliance for accessibility. But innovation lies in moving beyond the innovation.
This topic highlights the shifting of mindset from just including accessibility and testing it as per mere standards to moving beyond mere compliance with accessibility standards and focusing on creating exceptional user experiences for individuals with disabilities. It emphasizes a user-centric approach, inclusive design principles, and the benefits of going beyond minimum requirements.
By shifting the mindset, prioritizing usability, fostering innovation, and recognizing the business and social benefits, organizations can make a positive impact and ensure equal access for all.

Talk Takeaways
