A presentation at Connect.tech 2021 in in Atlanta, GA, USA by Todd Libby
Accessibility is often overlooked or bolted on to the end of a project from the experiences in my career in web development and design. The case for accessibility is something we as people who create and build things for the web should be implementing and advocating for from the inception of a project to the release or handoff and beyond.
The following resources were mentioned during the presentation or are useful additional information.
