    Hi Natalie!

    In terms of visual design vs user interface design, all of that is grouped under the Design heading, because at Vox Media we categorize product design, user experience design, and visual design all under one design group.

    We didn’t include every single accessibility guideline in our checklist, as they don’t all make sense in a checklist format. Viget’s interactive wcag was a big inspiration to us, and you can see guidelines there filtered by UX responsibilities, as well as design responsibilities.

    In terms of how they are distributed between Vox Media's different brands, our product team is a centralized team that works across all of our brands, so this is our internal documentation and our checklist website are shared resources that people from all teams can access.
