Accessible Javascript patterns

Web accessibility and Javascript often sound like sworn enemies. But if you follow the right patterns, all your users win!

It is estimated that 20% of the population has a disability of some kind. That’s a lot of users to leave on the curb, if your web app is inaccessible! When talking about web accessibility, we often focus on using the right HTML for the right purpose, setting up the right colour palette. Did you know that the way you write javascript also makes or breaks the accessibility of a website ? This talk will show you how great javascript can improve the accessibility of your website. We’ll walk through common interaction patterns such as navigation menus, modals, or custom form elements.
