For years, accessibility was seen as the domain of the engineer. Fixing an accessibility would be about writing code. As a maturing industry, and as we understand people with different types of disabilities, we are starting to better understand and appreciate the role of design in accessibility.

Accessibility legend Derek Featherstone joins us to talk about how things have changed, the role design plays, and how inclusion and diversity is where we are heading.

We discuss the ebb and flow of accessibility, how the interest in it appears to be cyclical. We talk about if accessibility is a seperate task or one that should be inbedded in what we do, the importance of deliberately designing specific aspects of accessibility, and how accessibility is an outcome but inclusive design is a process.
