WCAG2 for developers

A session at Canberra Accessibility Week

Wednesday 8th May, 2013

9:00am to 6:00pm (EST)

This course discusses accessibility basics and then covers WCAG2 success criteria, providing correct examples and specific development techniques.

AccessibilityOz training is unique in that we train developers by category (such as forms), instead of focusing on relevant success criteria. This takes a lot of the complexity out of WCAG2, and provides trainees with immediately usable techniques, code and examples.

Training includes issues such as:

  • Use of style sheets and hidden structural labels for navigation
  • Proper coding of data tables using TH ID, TD HEADERS, SUMMARY and CAPTION
  • Proper coding of fields using LABEL FOR and ID
  • Proper layout and coding of fields and field labels
  • Meaningful sequence and context change errors
  • Use of colour, sensory characteristics and location errors
  • Proper use of keyboard for forms and navigation

Several exercises are conducted throughout the course, allowing for participant engagement and furthering understanding. These exercises include:

  • Writing ALT attributes
  • Coding complex data tables
  • Identifying inaccessible keyboard sites
  • Identifying forms with incorrect coding
