  • Rian Rietveld, Sami Keijonen: Testing Web Accessibility

    WordCamp Europe 2018Speakers: Rian Rietveld, Sami Keijonen

    August 6, 2018 — People use different ways to interact with the web. Users navigate for example with a keyboard only or with their voice. To make this work properly, it ‘s necessary that the design, code and content is properly set up, accessible for all devices and users. How do you test the accessibility of a design, code and content of a web project? What are the guidelines to test against?

    We will go through the different ways to use the web, which guidelines to use, what to look out for when checking for accessibility errors and which checks and tools you can use to help you test. We will also discuss a setup for automated testing. Bring your laptop and join in.

    This workshop is for people who develop, design and write content, of all levels.
