Accessibility for the layperson is often thought of as a Himalaya of sorts. People have that impression because it’s perceived as incredibly long requirements, so we end up shrugging them off: it’s no use, we won’t be able to master them, so why bother start? The project of the Accessibility Responsibility Matrix (which we’ll explain shortly) is to replace hard-to-grasp long lists of criteria with human-readable text, all the while giving each role in the project only what they need to know according to their job. Rather than treating accessibility as an afterthought and/or a validation tool, the Accessibility Responsibility Matrix is one of several ways to integrate accessibility into the process as a whole.
