Radically Accessible Internet Applications 💯

An accessible internet experience makes all the difference for a person with a disability, whether they're enjoying online entertainment, paying bills or booking a trip to go adaptive skiing. You see, people with disabilities gain privacy and independence when they can handle their own affairs. Wouldn't it be radical if every web application supported users with disabilities?

As web experts, we can enable more of our users by shipping accessible interfaces every time, and I'll show you how. In this talk, We'll audit a web application for accessibility, making the necessary changes to support people with disabilities. The best part about it? By integrating accessibility into our development workflow, we'll make our apps more usable by everyone.
