Slides from #Respond16, Sydney Melbourne 2016
So, you've built an amazing new web application. It uses all the latest frameworks and libraries. It's beautiful to behold.
But is it accessible? Many web applications these days are built on top of pre-existing frameworks or code bases and there is little thought to how well these components will work for different assistive devices.
This talk will look at a range of common application components and how they can be made accessible - quickly and easily - for all users. We'll look at how to notify users when changing the DOM after page load. We will also look in-depth at accessible form validation, modal windows, drop-down menus, in-page tabs and other commonly used we components. You will leave this talk ready and eager to enhance your application, and in the process, make it available to entirely new audiences.
