Accessibility APIs: Where the magic happens!

Adem Cifcioglu Co-Founder & Director of Accessible Technologies Intopia

Are you coding for accessibility? Have you ever wondered how the accessibility information of the elements you've used and components you're building is exposed to assistive technologies, or why every accessibility person ever says: “Use native elements!”?

With this talk I aim to fill in the blanks by discussing how the Accessibility APIs work together with HTML elements, WAI ARIA and the Accessibility Tree to make the magic happen by extracting accessibility information from web interfaces and presenting it to assistive technologies.
