Web Accessibility with Aaron Gustafson

Episode #1369 Wednesday, November 2, 2016

What does it take to make the web more accessible? Carl and Richard talk to Aaron Gustafson about his years of work helping to create and support standards for accessibility on the web - all kinds of accessibility. While supporting visual and hearing impaired is important, there are so many more aspects to accessibility, especially today where those capabilities translate into new devices that make focus on speech or other completely different UI paradigms. The good news is, the tooling is getting better (check the links on the web page) to make it easy for you to keep accessibility in your mind as you code - don't bolt on at the end!


Aaron Gustafson

As would be expected from a former manager of the Web Standards Project, Aaron Gustafson is passionate about web standards and accessibility. He has been working on the Web for two decades now and is a web standards advocate at Microsoft, working closely with their browser team. He penned the seminal book on progressive enhancement, Adaptive Web Design, and writes about whatever’s on his mind at aaron-gustafson.com.
