Improve web accessibility of Turnstyle magazine webreader product to meet WCAG at level AA.

Recently, I led a six-month effort to retrofit a mature digital magazine reading product to meet WCAG 2.0 web accessibility standards.

I obtained multiple quotes and selected and vendor to provide training to the the engineering team, perform an audit on our current system and provide certification of our compliance after the completion of the project.  I collaborated with engineers to define the changes that would be required to the product features. These changes spanned the entire digital production workflow from PDF to responsive html article content, and the navigation interface for readers.

Through close collaboration with developers, customer support and QA, and a lot of time spent listening to screen readers, we resolved all accessibility issues and our product achieved level AA WCAG compliance.
