  • Stefano Minoia: Una boccata d’ARIA: introduzione all’accessibilità per sviluppatori

    WordCamp Italia 2020Speaker: Stefano Minoia

    November 2, 2020 — Rendere un sito accessibile richiede il coinvolgimento di tutti gli attori che operano nel web: i creatori di contenuti, i designer e, non ultimi, gli sviluppatori.
    Anche se probabilmente meno visibile, il contributo che gli sviluppatori possono dare all’accessibilità è spesso essenziale, soprattutto per le persone che fanno uso di tecnologie assistive.
    Senza entrare nei dettagli e senza fornire soluzioni chiavi in mano, scopriremo da dove possono partire gli sviluppatori che vogliono imparare a creare siti fruibili anche dalle persone con disabilità.

  • Rian Rietveld: Who’s afraid of ARIA?

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Rian Rietveld

    June 19, 2019 — WAI-ARIA means Accessible Rich Internet Applications. These are attributes you add to your HTML5 to (for example) inform blind visitors what is happening on your site.

    How do you use ARIA and why? And why is the first rule of ARIA: “Don’t use ARIA”?

    In this talk Rian will show you how to

    announce changes and error messages
    use the JavaScript function wp.a11y.speak()
    tell if a menu or accordion is closed or open
    give feedback on what’s happening on a one page website
    get the right documentation and examples

    Discover that ARIA isn’t that complicated and is very useful for those visitors that use your site in another way than you do.

  • Graham Armfield: Accessible Accordions for Your WordPress Theme

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Graham Armfield

    May 29, 2016 — ARIA attributes are important in web accessibility to provide support for making interactive widgets like accordions and tab panels accessible to everyone.

    This presentation will form an introduction to ARIA by showing you how to create accessible accordions for your WordPress themes. I’ll demonstrate using a screen reader and voice recognition software how the techniques can allow everyone to interact with the elements without compromising the functionality.

    If javascript is the future, you need to understand ARIA too.

  • Joe Dolson: ARIA – Roles, States and Properties

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Joe Dolson

    January 22, 2016 — ARIA is way to communicate the semantics of rich internet applications to users of assistive technology. But it’s not just useful for accessibility; ARIA is a whole meta language of semantic attributes within HTML that allows us to clearly communicate the roles, states, and properties HTML elements have in a complex web site ecosystem.
    I’ll talk about roles, states, and properties: what they are, how you use them, and how they can help us by creating more internally consistent HTML that’s also better for people with disabilities.
