Webcon: W3C ARIA Authoring Practices for Developers and Evaluators
April 8, 2021
The W3C ARIA Authoring practices are designed to help people understand how to create interactive accessible content for the web using the HTML5 and Accessible Rich Internet Application (ARIA) standards to meet the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 requirements. Whether you are a developer trying to understand the keyboard requirements for creating menu button, a designer looking to integrate landmarks and heading structure into a web application, or a quality assurance specialist identifying the roles and properties needed for describing an automatically rotating image carousel, the practices have the information you need - including fully tested working examples to compare to. The session will provide an overview of the organization and the types of resources contained in the ARIA Authoring Practices and demonstrate how the resources can be used to support design, coding and quality assurance activities for improving accessibility.
