Following Standards for Modern web Accessibility
We live in times when more and more people with disabilities participate in our daily activities and environments, and this is a good thing! But is the modern tech world, and more specifically the websites that we build, mindful of the needs those people have?
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), a part of the World Wide Web Consortium, has built guidelines on how to build websites mindful of people with different needs and disabilities called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). When you build websites following their standards, then your website is accessible for all people, with or without disabilities.
Come and join me in this talk to see which guidelines there are, why they are there and how to get started implementing them and be an accessibility rock star!
