Roundtable Discussion: Accessibility Tree, Accessibility APIs and ARIA

taught by: Derek Jackson


Session Summary

Sometimes it might feel like a black box sits between your content and users so let's take a look at what is happening along the route. We will discuss how the browser builds an accessibility tree, how that relates to the accessibility APIs which assistive technologies rely on, and where ARIA sits in this process. Bring your questions and stories to share, recommendations for tools you might like to use in this process, stories of success and failure, or your own knowledge on the topic to share with others.
