Léonie Watson, Director at TetraLogical, will be speaking at State of the Browser (SotB) today. Léonie returns to SotB to join Rachel Andrew, Heydon Pickering, Alex Russell, Stephanie Stimac and others, at the 2021 edition of this frontend conference.
Léonie's talk, Bag of Spanners, gets back to basics on accessibility engineering and accessibility mechanics in the browser:
Implementing accessible code can sometimes feel like the proverbial bag of spanners - something thrown together in ways that will probably give you (or someone using your product) grief.
It doesn't have to be like this though.
With an understanding of how accessibility mechanics work in the browser, knowledge of how to provide or polyfill accessibility semantics, and a little bit of elbow grease, you can turn your bag of spanners into a useful set of tools.
We like to listen. If you have a project, product, problem, or idea that you want to discuss, get in touch!
