Join us to learn about building accessible websites. Our two presenters will discuss ways to make web sites and web application accessible for people with disabilities and discuss / answer questions about the legal aspects. Bouton Jones is expert in web design and development; David Ondich is a recognized expert on the legal aspects of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).

Mr. Jones will discuss the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, HTML5, the use of skip links, WAI-ARIA (Landmarks, roles, etc.), QA/QC testing for A11y, available fonts for dyslexia, and using CSS for A11y testing, changing fonts & font sizes, as well as layouts, and emulating the Lynx text-only browser. Minimal familiarity with CSS is helpful. Depending on audience interest, he may include a small overview on ColdFusion, Adobe’s web application programming language.

Mr. Ondich will focus on the legal aspects of accessible websites in the context of the American with Disabilities (ADA) act.

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

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.

This will address the compelling reasons -- including legal -- for applying Accessibility to digital documentation: Word, PDF, PowerPoint, and Web. Examples of poor Accessibility will be presented with illustrations of the resulting effects for users with disabilities. Finally it will cover strategies and solutions.
