Successfully making Oregon Digital more accessible was part of the minimum viable product for our recent migration to Hyrax 3. Meeting this required the Team to acquire an understanding of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) and the skills to test the UI and implement solutions. Integrating this work into our normal workflows for the first time proved a challenge, from assigning existing personnel and recruiting outside expertise to the documenting of problems and the timing of dedicated sprints. We did many things right and a few things wrong, learned from the experience and are prepared to move forward with accessibility issues foremost in mind for future maintenance and development.
