Advanced Deep Dive into WAI ARIA
Code: ADD-07

  • Duration: 1 day
  • Audience: Developers, QA Specialists

This course is a hands-on interactive exploration on how the WCAG can be implemented on today’s multi-faceted websites to make them more accessible to people with disabilities using WAI-ARIA .

This is an opportunity for front end developers to dig deep into the attributes that fill in the accessibility gaps in modern applications, so they can meet the requirements of the WCAG. Bring those tough WAI-ARIA questions that have been keeping you up at night. Learn to use WAI-ARIA with prudence like a fine chef uses spices, rather than adding it all over everything and messing up accessibility. We will provide hands-on code work, we discuss best uses of JavaScript and how to supplement it with WAI-ARIA attributes, and we provide case studies and examples of accessible AJAX, JQuery, dynamic applications and other Web 2.0 widgets and electronic content.  This picks up where the Advanced Deep dive into WCAG leaves off. A USB key with tools, techniques and checklist are provided.
