Web Accessibility Compliance

Course Summary

Your content is clear, your images are responsive, your code is clean, and your layout flows beautifully on all the most popular devices. You think you're ready to launch, but you might have overlooked a crucial aspect of your website's development. If it's not easy for a person to access your content, regardless of the way in which they use the internet, there's still work to be done. Developing for accessibility should be part of the standard workflow, but it's often given too little attention. In this course, you’ll learn about the standards in place to guide developers in creating a web that is accessible to all users as well as techniques to help bring your projects up to those standards.

    Semantic HTML and WAI-ARIA

    Semantic HTML5 tags in our markup is one of the first tools to use in making a site accessible. There will be times, of course, when even our semantic tags don’t convey everything we want to about a particular element. WAI-ARIA stands for Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications, and allows us to craft our elements' functionality in new, accessible ways. 8 steps

    Testing for Accessibility

    You’re probably at least a little familiar with the benefits of testing your code, but testing for accessibility should be part of that process.
