Ted and accessibility

Ted is also Global Co-Chair of the Web4All Conference, and prior to his role at Intuit, he co-founded Yahoo!'s Accessibility Lab and was a "developer evangelist".

“Accessibility is more than making sure images have alternate text," says Ted. "I work with engineers, product managers, and designers to understand how accessibility impacts the users, set realistic deadlines, and create the solutions to provide a delightful experience to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive ability,” he says.
