To Hell with Performance
At Fronteers Spring 2016. There are scores of concerns, both back-end and front-end, when considering performance. When it comes to accessibility, user performance is also a major concern and extends beyond things like perceived time. While perceived time is very important for UX, accessible user experience intersects performance in that it requires allowing the user to answer one core question as they work with the interface: “What is this thing, and what does it do”.

Prioritizing Remediation – Inclusive Design 24
It doesn’t do the client any good to throw them a report filled with a bunch of accessibility violations unless that report also includes information to help them fix their problems.

Fundamentally, the prime reason why ICT is not accessible is that it has not been institutionalized among those who design, develop, and buy ICT products and services. The reason why it has not been institutionalized is because people – primarily those at the top – have not been convinced. I found a need to discuss this topic because a lot of people I talk to work in an environment like the one described above and they’re not making significant headway in turning things around.
