Hear how two UX experts challenged the 'norm' and in doing so, helped bring about change that's lead - indirectly - to the creation of a core pattern library; pa11y testing integrated into CI build pipelines; a new careers site designed, built and audited to meet WCAG 2.0 AA standards, as well as running awareness workshops across the business: all to ensure accessibility is at the core of design and development across all of Auto Trader.
