Pro HTML5 Accessibility

Book Description:

Pro HTML5 Accessibility helps designers come
to grips with building exciting, accessible and usable web
sites and applications with HTML5. The book covers how to use
HTML5 in order to serve the needs of people with disabilities
and older persons using assistive technology (AT). It aims to
be a useful ‘go-to’ guide, providing practical advice. It takes
several approaches, including a look at the new semantics of
HTML5 and how to combine its use with authoring practices you
know from using earlier versions of HTML. It also demonstrates
how HTML5 content is currently supported (or not) by assistive
technologies such as screen readers, and what this means
practically for accessibility in your web projects.

  • Introduces the new HTML5 specification from an
    accessibility perspective
  • Shows how incorporating accessibility into your interfaces
    using HTML5 can have benefits for all users
  • Explains how HTML5 is currently supported by assistive
    technologies like screen readers, and how to work around these
    limitations when developing
