Recently, several companies have launched amazing new sites that feature improvements in performance, responsiveness and the hotness of HTML5 and CSS3. 

These are great accomplishments; however what many forget to improve is the accessibility of the site.

In this session, learn: 

  • Some quick and easy fixes you can do right now (contrast, colors, and :focus)
  • Common mistakes we make (background images, icons, placeholder text vs label, semantic faux pas and roles)
  • How to handle forms and errors
  • Proposed features in the W3C pipeline
  • Testing techniques and automation
  • How to ensure company-wide standards
