More users, easier to maintain code, and support accessibility requirements

Testing for web accessibility can feel daunting when you aren’t used to it. But with the growing requirements for sites to meet accessibility guidelines, it has become an inescapable part of a developer’s life.

Ensuring accessibility into our sites and apps should be seen as a challenge rather than a chore.

By working on real life sites, as well as some code snippets, this workshop will demonstrate an accessibility testing workflow, which can be integrated into your own coding workflow.

Also, we will include a review of automated testing, and hands-on manual testing using a variety of tools, from using the keyboard to using a screen reader application.

Workshop Takeaways

  • Learn a solid understanding of common accessibility barriers
  • Learn methods to test and remediate accessibility barriers.
  • Create an accessibility testing workflow that can be integrated in your day-to-day coding.

Who should attend?

  • For people at all web development levels.

Prerequisites

  • Familiarity with HTML, CSS, and browser inspect tools is helpful, but not required.
