Workshop: No Code, No Problem: Build Your First Voice UI!
This workshop is available to in-person attendees in Austin only. It will not be viewable via the Online Conference. 

Join voice developers from NPR in a workshop to build a Voice UI. Learn the tools that we use to brainstorm, design, and develop a fun application that you can fully interact with. Bring a computer, some enthusiasm, and maybe that question you always wanted to ask a Voice Assistant. No prior coding experience required!

D12: Environmental Scan: Findings from the University of Minnesota Libraries new Accessibility Steering Committee
In 2018, University Libraries launched the Accessibility Steering Committee, the first such initiative for our organization.  As part of our charge, the group completed an environmental scan. We will share our process as well as the results of the environmental scan, focusing on how we assessed our own libraries landscape, identified internal and external partners, surveyed peer institutions, and reviewed accessibility literature.  We will also discuss how this information has shaped our plans moving forward.

D19-01: Enabling User-Driven Design through Accessible Design Thinking
Making our designs accessible is often something we do after we’ve utilized design thinking to help craft solutions to problems. But what if we could break the ‘do one and then the other’ approach and have both accessibility standards and design thinking work in tandem to develop innovative solutions? Rethinking the iterative approach of design thinking and adding accessibility checks throughout the entire process helps us to achieve truly universal design.
