Vortrag: Newcomer: Building Truly Accessible Software
More and more, companies become aware that making their software accessible is not only the right thing to do, but opens up the software for a bigger market. However, most of the time accessibility is thought of only at the end of a project when there is no time left. Including accessibility concerns right from the start would make it easier to build a truly accessible solution. Still, for us developers, it is difficult to get a solid grasp on accessibility. There is a wide range of tools that check the accessibility of your web application. Most of them perform well, however, they only scratch the surface of what true accessibility means.
In this session, I would like to offer an entry point into the complex topic. I explain what accessibility is really about, who benefits from it, and why you shouldn't just rely on tools when developing an accessible application.
