2011, Nov 11th, Google Developer Day Sydney: “Making Your Web Apps Accessible Using HTML5 and ChromeVox”

Talk with Alice Boxhall

When you build web apps that are interactive and dynamic, how do you make them accessible to users with disabilities? How can ChromeVox, a screen reader for Chrome, help you to test apps for accessibility? With proven HTML5 techniques, web developers can provide an experience that’s just as rich and interactive for people who use assistive technology. The emphasis of this talk will be on methods that work today, with the latest browser versions. We’ll cover proper use of ARIA along with focus management, keyboard navigation, and simple UI testing for accessibility with ChromeVox.
