Alice Boxhall presenting "Debugging Accessibility" at Fronteers Conference 2017 in Amsterdam, on 5 October 2017.
How do people with disabilities use the web? Well, that depends on how accessible your site is.
Many people with disabilities use assistive technologies, which adapt an existing user interface into a modality which the user can access. A large chunk of the broad spectrum covered by the term "accessibility" concerns making sure you mark up your front-end code to work well for assistive technology users.
In her talk, Alice Boxhall discusses why developers so often get this wrong, even with the best of intentions, and demonstrates some new features in Chrome which can help you understand and debug accessibility in your web pages.
