How to make your websites more accessible

A session at PyCon US 2012

  • Robbie Clemons

Friday 9th March, 2012

11:30am to 12:10pm (PST)

Is your website accessible? Have you tested it? What does it even mean for a website to be accessible? In this talk we'll show some of the most common problems disabled users have and demonstrate how to fix them. I'll also introduce you to some tools that are written in Python to help you determine how accessible your site is.

There are several different types of Assistive Technology designed to help disabled users access the web. However a lot of websites don't work well with some Assistive Technologies and in this talk we'll show how to uncover the accessibility problems in a website and fix them. I'll provide a demonstration by using some common Assistive Technology on a few different example websites built with Python web frameworks that are problematic and then I'll show the modifications necessary to make each website accessible.
