Testing for web accessibility can feel daunting when you aren't accustomed to it. But with the growing requirements for sites to meet accessibility guidelines, it has become an inescapable part of a developer's life. Accessibility should be seen as a challenge, rather than a chore.
This workshop will demonstrate an accessibility testing workflow that can be integrated into coding workflow and will include a review of automated testing, and hands-on manual testing using a variety of tools, from using the keyboard to using a screen reader application. We will work on real-life sites, as well as some code snippets.
Participants will leave the workshop with a solid understanding of common accessibility barriers and methods to test for, and how to remediate these barriers.
Attendees will need to bring their own laptop. Some software is required to be installed ahead of time. A detailed list will be made available to registered attendees two weeks before the workshop but include a screen reader, code inspection tools, color analyzer tools (all tools free for download).
