Connecting the Accessibility Dots

taught by: Eric Eggert

Session Summary

It is easy to get lost in the requirements for accessibility, the needs of people with disabilities and intricate specific workings of assistive technologies. In addition there’s lots of jargon around that does makes picking up accessibility hard.


Eric’s session tries to give an holistic view of accessibility. Why is it important? What are the important concepts? How do people with disabilities actually use the web? How can we create accessible websites without consulting WCAG all the time? When, and how, can we make sure that we don’t step into the same traps all the time again and again?

Practical Skills

  • Connect Accessibility in different parts of your organization
