One of the stated goals of HTML5 is to make it easier for authors to create accessible web content with a minimum of trouble. By employing Universal Design concepts, the next generation of web technologies and content will be more accessible to end users, yet easier to author and implement. But are we there yet?
HTML5 introduces a number of new elements & attributes, form controls and other new features that will be of benefit to all users, including those with various disabilities. Yet there remains much controversy and discord over aspects of HTML5 and accessibility, leaving many content authors confused, frustrated and unsure exactly what they should be doing to ensure accessible content.
