Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. I'm Stacey Swinehart, and I am a UX designer at PayPal. My latest work includes the redesign of PayPal's online checkout, as well as the new PayPal for Business. I'm very passionate about inclusive design, and most of my personal work focuses on designing for age. In this course, we are going to learn how to include accessibility into your daily design process. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include how to ensure your colors pass accessibility standards, why you need to include users with disabilities into your research and usability testing, and how to begin annotating for accessibility in UI specs. By the end of the training, you will have learned some great tips on how to use inclusive design thinking through the use of a style guide that you will then be able to customize to match your company's visual patterns. I'm really excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques and my design methodology with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
