Testing for accessibility improves inclusion for online banking users, yet many firms struggle to deliver the right experience. QA Media is organising this invitation-only summit in partnership with Deque.
Testing for accessibility aims to improve inclusion for online banking users, yet many firms struggle to deliver accessible experiences. Competing regulatory priorities, ineffective designation of responsibility and lack of awareness (of guidelines and tooling) are common roadblocks. We will explore these challenges and make our QA Vector Insights available at this exclusive private briefing.
