A presentation at Florida DrupalCamp 2014 in in Orlando, FL, USA by Helena McCabe

Shouldn’t the web be awesome for everyone?

The goal of this session is to introduce developers and designers to web accessibility – what it is, why it’s important, and how to build a web accessibility initiative in their own companies. This includes a brief sampler platter of some fundamental no-no’s and hoorays when building and designing, some neat tools, and a walkthrough of basic standards for accessibility. This session will touch on Section 508, WCAG standards, and WAI-ARIA.
