Designing For Accessibility And Inclusion Designing For Accessibility And Inclusion Steven Lambert 2018-04-09T14:45:39+02:00 2018-04-10T14:53:40+00:00 “Accessibility is solved at the design stage.” This is a phrase that Daniel Na and his team heard over and over again while attending a conference.

The Rise Of Intelligent Conversational UI

The Rise Of Intelligent Conversational UI The Rise Of Intelligent Conversational UI Burke Holland 2018-04-05T13:00:48+02:00 2018-04-10T14:53:40+00:00 For a long time, we’ve thought of interfaces strictly in a visual sense: buttons, dropdown lists, sliders, carousels (please no more carousels). But now we are staring into a future composed not just of visual interfaces, but of conversational ones as well.
