Dafydd Henke-Reed, Principal Accessibility and Usability Consultant with AbilityNet will be speaking about Accessibility Anti-Patterns.
When developing for the web, even with the best intentions, accessibility can become a vortex of inelegant code, functionality that does not degrade gracefully, and localisation nightmares. Dafydd's talk will discuss what happens when accessibility goes wrong. It will "provide war-stories covering immense and monstrous websites, and how they got stuck in digital swamps."
Attendees will gain an understanding about how to promote productive accessibility and expert advice to help you avoid falling into traps when making accessibility improvements.
