Web forms should work. No doubt about that. And they should work for all visitors, regardless of device or ability.

Gravity Forms set as goal: to ensure that all forms created with Gravity Forms can be WCAG 2.1 AA compliant. It has been quite an eventful journey and Morgan and Rian are happy to share this with you.

Accessibility always was a focus point of Gravity Forms but, with the fast development of changing accessibility requirements and legislation worldwide, more specialised expertise was needed. Therefore Rian Rietveld, web accessibility specialist from Level Level joined the team.

In this talk we show you the steps we took to test and improve the accessibility of the forms build with Gravity Forms. Like doing an initial audit, training the developers and designers, finding good solutions for issues without breaking existing forms, helping the Q&A team with extra test tools and writing documentation.

This talk is for everyone that wants to enhance the accessibility of a web project and wants to learn the way to implement this in their workflow.
