Accessibility scapegoat. Just kidding. Can I claim that exposure to Birkir and his puns has been a bad influence on me?

If you just intend the person to be a resource for the other team members "Accessibility SME" (Subject Matter Expert) might be good. If they will have some responsibility and authority for accessibility, a title like "accessibility lead" might work.

I would basically just add "accessibility" to some "title" the teams already feel familiar with. It probably will give the teams a better idea where that person fits and make it easier for that team member to establish their sphere of influence.

In a software development IPT (Integrated Project Team), everyone should consider and implement accessibility in their own areas of responsibility. However, I want to designate a role for the person who would oversee this and take responsibility. What would the name of this role be?
