Web Accessibility Through the Ages
We've come a long way, baby. From being somewhere between a myth and an afterthought to being a mainstream consideration in websites everywhere, accessibility knowledge, technology, and law has grown by leaps and bounds through the years. In this session, we'll take a look back at the beginnings of accessibility, the updated current standards today, and a look into future at some of the new technologies that accessibility has coming down the pipe. This isn't a code-heavy session, so it's a good one for leadership, project managers, and editors to attend to better understand the accessibility landscape as it affects our industry.
