Talks: Accessibility for the Web


In this talk, we’ll be talking about designing accessibility for the web – from a developer’s perspective! Despite what we envision, not every user is 100% flawless as far as mental and physical capabilities go – and there’s no excuse for ignoring that. Building an accessible product almost always leads to a much more well-architected product – so it’s a win-win.

In this talk, we’ll discuss the tools and strategies you can use to aid users with visual, auditory, cognitive, and motor impairments. We’ll discuss contrast, colors, content, keyboard flows, screen readers, section 508 – as well as some development concepts such as skip menus, the accessibility tree, hover and focus indicators, ARIA properties, and more.

There’s a lot that developers and designers can do to aid users with impairments – so let’s do it!

A Genuine Request

Hello there - thank you for reading my post! If you enjoyed it, I'd love it if you considered supporting me. I'm not asking for money or any of that "buy me a beer" crap; I would just love it if you would consider downloading (and using) the Brave browser using my referral code!

The Brave Browser Brave has a focus on security and privacy - and is hardcore against ads. That means that sites like mine wouldn't generate any revenue if you viewed them in Brave - but that's okay; I only make about $10 / month with ads, and that goes right to hosting. If you use my referral code to download Brave and use it for a bit though, I get about $5 with Brave's currency - Basic Attention Token, or BAT for short.

Whether you consider using it or not, I'm just glad you read this post. Thanks again!
