Using the Accessibility Tree to Debug HTML

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 2:20 PM PDT  
Grand GH  

Waiting for accessibility feedback on our development work from a full audit puts us at risk of launching inaccessible HTML due to the proximity of that feedback to our release date. This often causes our teams to pick and choose which issues to resolve leaving issues that get sent to production. This session will help you assess your code while you work on it by using the Accessibility Tree found in browser dev tools. The Accessibility Tree is the basis of the Accessibility API which communicates between the browser and assistive technologies. This session will look at how to use this information and remediate issues before you submit your code.
