Digital accessibility is the process of making digital products (websites, mobile apps, and other digital tools and technologies) accessible to everyone. It is about providing all users access to the same information.
After majoring in psychology at California State University, Northridge, Margaret moved to Seattle to pursue her Master’s degree in Human-Centered Design and Engineering from the University of Washington. Co-leader of the URI Accessibility Taskforce, Margaret is passionate about accessibility and community-building, and she believes that UX has the capacity to improve every aspect of our lives – from the computer software we use at work, to the website that we browse for entertainment, to the mobile apps that we use on a daily basis.
Becca is a User Experience Researcher at User Research International in Redmond, WA, and a current master’s student at the University of Washington studying Human-Centered Design and Engineering.
