Introduction to Web Accessibility
In this video, Evan DiGiambattista explores various impairments that disabled users face while browsing the web, and some standard technologies and considerations that are put in place to accommodate these users. One of the notable accessibility standards covered, ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications), is a W3C guideline that can be used to extend your HTML tags in order to give more information/detail to screen readers/braille displays, rendering a much more intuitive and enjoyable experience for those who depend on those technologies. Keeping the web open and accessible is a responsibility we all share, and its never to late to start making your web applications accessible to everyone.
