Web Accessibility: Getting Started
This course covers essential design, coding, and testing procedures for Web designers and developers who want to make their sites and applications accessible to all.
What you'll learn
This course discusses what constitutes a disability when it comes to the Web and how different disabilities/issues affect the way in which people with them use the Web. We will see how designers and developers can make better design decisions to help those with disabilities/issues use their products, cover coding techniques that aid assistive technologies which enable them to better interact with their site or app, and discuss current Web accessibility guidelines and what we can do to meet them. Also, we will explore tools for testing the accessibility of our products that will show us how well we are doing and, in some cases, even allow us to simulate how users with disabilities will experience them.
