Making streaming video inclusive

Join TPGi as we review accessibility considerations for delivering streaming video across multiple platforms using a variety of input modalities. Designers and developers will learn how to improve the user journey of finding and playing video content on demand.

Structuring accessible forms

Forms have a strong semantic structure from labeling controls to ensuring the states of controls are announced by assistive technology. We look at the basics of building a form with different input types, adding in the necessary HTML attributes to link our form elements semantically, sprinkling in ARIA attributes and handling errors and data validation.

Using the JAWS screen reader to create better digital content

Knowing how to use a screen reader makes you a better content creator and web developer. Learn the basics of using the JAWS screen reader to navigate webpages and documents. Find out the common issues that using a screen reader can detect, as well as ways to improve your content for people with vision and cognitive impairments.

The web is inherently accessible

The web is accessible by default; it is our design decisions that stop it being accessible. We need to develop accessible pages from the bottom up, starting with semantic HTML. Many designers and developers have a poor grasp of what native elements to use and what functionality they provide. Every semantic mistake introduces accessibility issues into your code.
