The Inclusive Design and Accessibility Answer Hour

Professional Forum

Sina Bahram, Prime Access Consulting, Inc., USA, Corey Timpson, Corey Timpson Design Inc., Canada

Help us build an inclusive design and accessibility knowledge base for our field. Corey Timpson and Sina Bahram team up for an hour of documented questions and answers. Bring your accessibility and inclusive design queries and solutions – from Firefox to fire exits, from visual description to visual design
– and help build a knowledge base of best practices for the community by the community. Through our work we encounter complex scenarios that demand complex and nuanced solutions, and yet we also encounter common issues that saturate the cultural landscape. Symptoms require treatment, but sustainability and advancement field-wide will only come from informing ourselves at the cause level.

Sina Bahram and Corey Timpson have worked on dozens of projects ranging from specific accessibility initiatives around a product, exhibit, or service offering to multi-year capital projects featuring tens of vendors and dozens of stakeholders. Independent of scale, the adoption of accessibility best practices and inclusive design thinking has only ever increased the success of the project, facilitated increased happiness for both the institution and their visitors, and delivered on organizational objectives such as increased visitorship, greater earned revenue, higher engagement, widened audience reach, and more.
