Workshop at Frontend Conf 2018
We are happy to announce that Joshua will be holding a workshop at Frontend Conference 2018 in Zurich.
In this full day workshop Joshua will explain how to implement autocomplete widgets that truly work for all, based on the Accessibility Developer Guide's autosuggest widget.
Not only will the audience reproduce the steps and decisions necessary for creating this inclusive truly widget - you will also learn how to examine the quality of other solutions using sophisticated tools (like screen readers).
Successful go-live of the ADG
Joshuas vision has come true: after years of work, on June 19th, the Accessibility Developer Guide (ADG) has finally been released to the public. Around 100 interested persons attended the event in Zürich.
Joshua is the initiator and main contributor of the ADG, but finally it was a communal effort by the Accessibility Alliance. The project is 100% Open Source.
The ADG was developed under the keyword "by developers - for developers" in order to support them practically, concretely and pragmatically in the creation of accessible web offers. It is the only resource like this, and as such our legacy to «Access for all» (but we will continue to work on it as part of the Open Source community).
Electronic media are designed in such a way that they can also be used by people with disabilities without difficulty or outside help.
Our firm conviction
- Good, clean code is at the same time simple, long-living (robust), well maintainable, automated testable, and thus already as far as possible accessible.
- Accessibility is completely compatible with innovativity, interactivity and attractive design.
- Accessibility promotes the overall quality of a project far beyond the obvious areas (code quality, search engine optimization, usability).
- The additional costs are low if accessibility is included right from the start.
But be careful: Accessibility is not a self-runner!
Years of experience with dozens of projects has shown me time and again that the pursuit of accessibility without profound knowledge is in most cases doomed to failure - especially if one tries to optimize a project only afterwards.
Competent advice is therefore invaluable. And that's where we come in!
Welcome offer: Free "get to know" session!
Whether consultation or live-test of your website - the first session via video conference is absolutely free for you!
You will be amazed what you will learn about accessibility in such a short time - and then consider whether you want to take advantage of our services.
