Abstract

ARIA. HTML. CSS. Animation. Interaction. The Web in 2018 is incredibly complex. In this Talk, Eric Eggert shows how to use accessible design principles to plan, communicate, and implement accessibility in projects. Get over the need for expensive after-the-fact accessibility tests and the resulting refactoring of your website. Implementing accessibility as a fundamental design principle also benefits other areas, for example, it can result in better reliability on slow networks or improved usability in diverse user scenarios.
