Creating Accessible PDFs with MS Office, Acrobat, and ColdFusion

October 2, 2018 - 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM (PDT)

This expands on my Accessibility session last year but focuses specifically on PDFs including fillable forms, OCR, redaction, quality assurance, and eSignatures/digital signatures as they relate to PDF Accessibility.

Making your Web Applications Accessible with HTML5, CSS, and WAI-ARIA

October 3, 2018 - 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM (PDT)

This expands on my Accessibility session last year but focuses on web pages and web applications. Because Accessibility is more often addressed on the front end, the CF content will be limited in this presentation. Topics will include the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, HTML5, skip links, WAI-ARIA (Landmarks, roles, etc.,), quality testing for A11y, fonts for dyslexia, and using CSS for A11y, A11y testing, changing fonts & font sizes, changing layouts, and emulating the Lynx browser. Only a minimal familiarity with CSS is expected.

Examples of poor Accessibility will be presented with illustrations of the resulting effects for users with disabilities. Finally it will cover strategies and solutions.
