Agile accessibility incorporates accessibility into every phase of the digital experience life cycle, from ideation and design through development, testing, and deployment. It’s about continuous iteration to improve existing digital experiences every step of the way. It’s a departure from the status-quo process of testing an experience for accessibility after it’s been developed—or worse, launched—and scrambling to fix issues at this late stage (a process referred to as “break/fix”). In contrast to the reactive status quo, where teams are trapped in a costly and inefficient break/fix cycle, agile accessibility is the most efficient and effective method to achieve sustainable accessibility. When organizations proactively and consistently address accessibility throughout the digital experience life cycle, they save time, money, and energy. They also shorten timelines for functional delivery because addressing accessibility doesn’t interfere with the development roadmap.
