Making Content Creation Tools Accessible

Did you know that an Undo button can be an accessibility feature? It is if your product is a content creation tool. Accessibility is as important for your admin and content creation tools as it is for front facing products.

If you've ever wondered what content creation features are useful to people with disabilities, or how you can help your creators to easily make more accessible content, then the ATAG (Authoring Tools Accessibility Guidelines) standard is what you need. It's a bit different than WCAG in ways that are useful for web apps and software.

Using ATAG as a guide, this talk will walk you through an accessibility features list to help refine your requirements and prioritize your backlog. The right preference settings, keyboard shortcuts and documentation in your app can help everyone build a more accessible web.

Don't miss your chance to see Julie Grundy and many other inspiring speakers at Summit.

Tickets start at $1295.
