Accessibility often takes a backseat in open source software, creating barriers that exclude a significant portion of users and contributors. This talk spotlights this critical issue, advocating a shift in how we approach open source development.

We’ll delve into the essence of engineering accessible software, emphasising why accessibility should be a fundamental, not an afterthought. We’ll also explore practical strategies for embedding accessibility into the DNA of open source software, from the initial design to the final output.

By the end of the talk, attendees will have a clearer understanding of the importance of accessible open source software, and be empowered to take actionable steps towards creating more inclusive technology.
