Good evening colleagues,

I'm actively in search of a role-based Responsibility Matrix for accessibility training/policy. If you have one, please send it my way.

Thanks a million.

I don't know of one however I watched someone (Mark Stimpson?) from
Keiser Permanente talk about using one for getting QA guys up to speed
catching most of their a11y issues using VoiceOver to test.
Here are the slides, if this is what you mean

Thanks.

I'll review this slide deck. To clarify, I'm look for a matrix that shows the responsibilities of each person/role within the Software Development Life-Cycle relative to Section508/WCAG 2.0 conformance.

Hi, Thomas. There’s this resource (a bit dated, but still very useful!) from the WAI-Engage community group that maps WCAG principles and success criteria to different roles:

https://www.w3.org/community/wai-engage/wiki/Accessibility_Responsibility_Breakdown

Hope this helps!

Best,
Sarah

In a similar vein to the WAI-Engage breakdown, the Interactive WCAG 2.0
<http://code.viget.com/interactive-wcag/#responsibility=&;levelª> lets you
filter WCAG success criteria by role responsibility. It's a bit more
recent.

I think the assumption here is that QA and developers are responsible for
implementing and testing everything on the list, but some decisions about
accessibility are better made by UX, design, or content people. So in the
design phase, workflows, designs and content should be reviewed based on
the applicable success criteria before going into development.

User research and project management don't really get covered here, though,
as their roles in the process are more holistic. In my view, a PM is
responsible for making sure there's enough time and resources throughout
the software lifecycle to incorporate and test for accessibility. User
researchers should make sure to include users with disabilities in
interviews, user testing, etc.

From personal experience, I've also found it helps to have at least one
person on the team who can act as an accessibility champion in addition to
their normal role. That person doesn't necessarily have to be an
accessibility expert; they just have to be interested, willing to learn,
willing to help others on the team, and willing and able to reach out for
help. The key is to make sure if someone on the team takes on that
responsibility, that they are given the time and resources to learn.

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] A11y Responsibility Matrix

In a similar vein to the WAI-Engage breakdown, the Interactive WCAG 2.0 <http://code.viget.com/interactive-wcag/#responsibility=&;levelª> lets you filter WCAG success criteria by role responsibility. It's a bit more recent.

I think the assumption here is that QA and developers are responsible for implementing and testing everything on the list, but some decisions about accessibility are better made by UX, design, or content people. So in the design phase, workflows, designs and content should be reviewed based on the applicable success criteria before going into development.

User research and project management don't really get covered here, though, as their roles in the process are more holistic. In my view, a PM is responsible for making sure there's enough time and resources throughout the software lifecycle to incorporate and test for accessibility. User researchers should make sure to include users with disabilities in interviews, user testing, etc.

From personal experience, I've also found it helps to have at least one person on the team who can act as an accessibility champion in addition to their normal role. That person doesn't necessarily have to be an accessibility expert; they just have to be interested, willing to learn, willing to help others on the team, and willing and able to reach out for help. The key is to make sure if someone on the team takes on that responsibility, that they are given the time and resources to learn.
