Here’s a free, hour-long talk that Derek Featherstone recently delivered at the CSS Developer Conference in New Orleans. As a Treehouse Pro member you get access to our extensive library of conference talks and workshops. This is a great example of the quality of the content.
When most people think about accessibility, they think about HTML as the foundation for accessibility. It makes perfect sense, strong semantic HTML has a huge impact on a visually impaired person using a screen reader. But, what about people with other disabilities? The truth is, there are many more people with low-vision out there than there are blind. And there are a huge number of other disabilities that most people don’t even consider when they build their sites and applications.
In order to provide the best user experience to people of all abilities, Derek believes we must move beyond “write great HTML and you’ll be accessible.” To do that, you can use CSS. In this session, he’ll share with you some of the most significant accessibility challenges we face when it comes to the web today and share with you solutions for addressing those head on with the CSS you write. You’ll learn all about the issues, AND know what to do about them.
