Description

This is an online course designed for people to learn about how to use web standards to meet W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 requirements. W3C Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) and HTML5 provide powerful new means to use web standards to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA requirements. The course will help you understand the techniques to use ARIA and HTML5 techniques to make web pages and applications more accessible to people with disabilities.

Day one is provides basic information on the WCAG 2.0 requirements and how the requirements can be met with ARIA and HTML5 techniques.

Day 2 will cover forms, dynamic content and advanced user interface controls developed with Ajax, HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies that require the use of ARIA. ARIA adds accessibility information to describe the behaviors and features of pages and applications that provide semantics not defined in the HTML4 and HTML5 languages.
