A toolkit for web accessibility

Web accessibility is easier to achieve and maintain with the right tools. Some are useful to help you make the right choices, others can find certain problems automatically, often even before your product or page ships. In this talk, Hidde will tell us all about the tools to use to improve web accessibility.

Could browsers fix more accessibility problems automatically?

Accessibility best practices and standards are great, but realistically, they don’t reach everybody. Part of the web is still inaccessible to people with disabilities. What if browsers could give users the power to override the web, and fix accessibility errors in web content whenever they can? In this talk, I will discuss accessibility features in today’s browsers and share what else could be done.

It’s the markup that matters

As web developers, a large part of what we can do to improve the accessibility of our sites and apps, is in markup. In this talk, you’ll learn how the markup we write impacts the Document Object Model (DOM) and Accessibility APIs. We’ll look at specific examples and how to optimise them for end users. Lastly, we’ll peak into upcoming changes: how will the Accessibility Object Model (AOM) help us in the future?
