DIY Accessibility Lunch ‘n’ Learn: Make ARIA Sing
Join the Accessibility Ambassadors on December 2 for a presentation by former ambassador Jenn Czeck about Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) attributes.
ARIA is an important accessibility component that ensures complex web applications will work well with screen-reading software. However, when used incorrectly it can actually make accessibility worse.
Whether you are a soloist or part of a large group, learning the who, what, when, where, why, and how of ARIA can be daunting. Jenn Czeck will be your conductor, leading your site from a cacophony of sound to a harmonious melody. GIFs included.
Jenn is a former UMN employee. She currently works at US Bank as an accessibility consultant.
This presentation will be useful for developers who want to move to the next step of their accessibility practice. Please join us!
