In this hands-on, two-day Advanced Web Accessibility course, students take a deeper dive into modern techniques for web accessibility using WAI-ARIA, HTML5, and CSS. Students learn best practices for ARIA use to structure web pages, provide labelling and instructions, and adding accessibility to applications and widgets. The course also examines using accessible design patterns, how to develop a keyboard interface and control focus, and how ARIA works to provide accessibility to scripted elements. Students perform labs to fix accessibility issues in HTML and CSS, determine the correct ways to use ARIA, and add ARIA to code.
Please note that the recent (June 2018) addition of 17 success criteria found in WCAG 2.1 are briefly covered in this course. However, like AAA-level criterion, 2.1 updates currently are not included in legislation, and so receive less focus. Learn more.
