Accessibility benefits everyone, not just people with disabilities. Whether someone is Deaf or blind, has motor or cognitive disabilities, or doesn't speak English as a first language, or tries to use your app on a mobile device in bright sun, if accessibility hasn't been considered, your app is likely to lock them out of being able to use it. As such, it is mission critical for our code output to take into account web accessibility basics.
We'll explore the POUR principle: Building apps that are Perceivable, Operably, Understandable and Robust. We'll talk a bit about who is affected by lack of accessibility, and what barriers people may face.
You'll leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the issues, some practical things to implement, and resources to be able to increase your knowledge.
