Accessible design and programming benefits everyone, not just those with accessible needs. Adding accessibility features into your software opens your software to a 20% increase in market reach (and growing), while making the experience better for everyone. All too often, popular websites and apps fail to design for accessibility, unknowingly resulting in a huge loss their user base, because they simply can’t use the website or app. In business terms, 20% is a whopping number that in the end is some serious cash. And it’s all due to a lack of accessible design.

In this session, you’ll learn how to prepare content, design, and program using the techniques that enable those with visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive impairments so those millions of people can now use your apps effectively. You’ll learn to assess what your customer’s accessibility needs are, as well as how to write code with accessibility in mind. You’ll also learn how easy it is to do, with no learning curve. You’ll learn about HTML semantics, ARIA elements, tricks and traps within coding practices to keep in mind while crafting webpages and app layouts.
