The web is accessible by default; it is our design decisions that stop it being accessible. We need to develop accessible pages from the bottom up, starting with semantic HTML. Many designers and developers have a poor grasp of what native elements to use and what functionality they provide. Every semantic mistake introduces accessibility issues into your code. In this session, you will learn

• When to use a link or a button
• Why to use headings
• How to create form fields
• When to use tables
• How to create accessible images, font icons and emojis

Excellent overview and deeper dives into WCAG better practices. Loving the screen reader playbacks of all of the code samples, and the showcasing of various assistive technologies.

Also excellent job by Rachele fielding numerous questions from
the audience throughout the presentation.

Very engaging and informative session

Nice use of the screen reader in practice. There are lots of things to cover, so good job narrowing it down to common issues.

Appreciate your command of the topic and the audience.
The "disable css to visit page" example is great and impactful.
