Testing For Accessibility: Don't Be A Showstopper


Comments are closed.

Very interesting topic! The slides were a bit hard to read from the back of the room, but it was a good talk and I learned a lot!

Well done. Some reallife examples of a talking screenreader next time? Will certainly join again next time.

I have heard some talks at other conferences about this topic and none of them was done by someone who was disabled. This made this talk special. The presenter was funny and spoke very clear. I think the topic could have more depth but very happy overall.

When I walked into the room I saw that the presenter was one of the people where the topic was about. To me it felt like a direct added value. Someone who knows what he is talking about in practice rather than theory. The most of the theory was already known. Had hoped for more in depth insights? Where should we keep an eye on as developers? How does the spreaker use websites in daily life. The threshold is now too high in order to investigate the full WAI-ARIA guidelines.

I've talked to Bram before so I knew it was going to be an interesting talk, I liked that he focused on explaining what it means to have certain disabilities. Instead of telling us what HTML attributes to use, he told us how to simulate having a disability. This adds much more value and of course matches the title of the talk by putting emphasis on testing.

Good overview, though the speakers in that room all needed to speak much more loudly due to the fact that the room seemed to dampen all sound (would have been great to have the schrijftolken in that room!).

Too bad there wasn't time for a quick screen reader demo, people are always curious about those, but it was great that it showed easy tests any developer can do even if they don't read the WCAG.

Not really my topic maybe.
