Topic: WAI-ARIA: Intro to Accessible Dynamic Web Content
Presenter: Janet Sylvia, Web Accessibility Group (WAG) Leader
Guest Speakers: Adelle Frank, (Web Developer Manager, Senior at Georgia Tech); and Casey Gordon (Web Developer at UGA FACS) and other WAG Members share their experiences implementing basic ARIA.
Description: Join us for this introduction to Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA), a suite of attributes used to create accessible content when HTML source-code alone is insufficient. We will discuss core components of ARIA for creating accessible navigation, forms, widgets, and other dynamic content. WAG members who have implemented basic ARIA will share their experiences.
Note: Section 508 allows for “equivalent facilitation” of web-based content. By incorporating ARIA attributes, you are complying with Section 508 by providing “substantially equivalent or greater access to and use of (your website) for people with disabilities.”
