As a Web Designer/Front-End Developer, this tutorial on web accessibility is very useful- especially with the tips on installing certain web accessibility browser extensions, the hands-on approach on showing why and how web accessibility is so important on various devices.

Very informative. The tools highlighted are useful for multiple aspects of web development (not just PHP-centric) as well as design and QA.

Accessibility is so important for websites and applications. This tutorial did a good job of explaining these issues. Some of the slides were a bit hard to read with the contrast and lighting in the room but otherwise a great talk.

Very helpful. Great stories about how people use computers differently, including examples of how a11y can help everyone's experience. The videos directly from users who needed a11y were helpful.

Great examples, easy to follow, loved having a thumbdrive of tools to use.

This was a fascinating talk, and honestly this tutorial alone was worth the price of the conference. I hope Andrea either makes this available as a purchase-able video tutorial, or does it again at Nomad or similar online venue. The only negative on this talk was that there was a bit too much time given to what began to feel like a sales pitch for Apple products because of their support for a11y features. But that's nitpicking tbh. I'm excited to learn more about a11y issues.

It is clear that Andrea is an expert in this vast topic that a lot of us overlook. I hope she never tires of being an evangelist for web accessibility.

Very useful
