We all know that accessible websites are important, but many people assume that accessible equates to static or boring. In an attempt to be "accessible" they add ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) roles and landmarks on everything which is counterintuitive. Knowing when to avoid ARIA and how to properly implement it leads to an accessible and enjoyable website for all. Aten's accessibility expert, Michaela Lederman will cover the ins and outs of incorporating ARIA into your development process including:

  1. What ARIA is and why we use it

  2. When to use ARIA vs native elements

  3. Common ARIA and how to properly implement in to your code

Developers will leave feeling confident balancing accessible javascript using ARIA and native elements.
