Building for Low Vision

When it comes to building or designing UIs that target visual disabilities, we tend to target the extremes such as sighted vs. total blindness. But visual disabilities aren't binary. There's a range of circumstances that can affect someone's vision. This talk dives into various peer-reviewed studies that shine a light on how we address navigation related to users with low vision. We'll look at what low vision and how Accessible User Experience Design (AUXD) plays a part in improving the user's journey.
