Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Code ’20 session spotlight–Making Single Page Apps Accessible

Making Single Page Apps Accessible

Jess Budd, Front End Developer HBF

Javascript frameworks get a bad rap when it comes to accessibility. But is it the frameworks creating the barriers, or us as the developers?

Follow me on a journey through div soup, past the lost focus and under the unchanged titles. Find out: is there actually anything in javascript libraries preventing us from building accessible web apps?

You’ll get an overview of fundamental issues, how to address them, and how to ensure your website is accessible and inclusive to all.
