11.30 Technological and evaluation foundations of Accessible Web. Docent Ossi Nykänen, Tampere University of Technology, W3C

  • PRESENTATION: http://www.w3c.tut.fi/talks/2012/0119-media-goes-accessible/
  • Abstract: Standard, machine-understandable interfaces are necessary for implementing and evaluating accessible Web applications and content. Quite often, however, certain legacy design practices motivated by the “desktop Web” are not sufficient from accessibility point of view and additional information and/or a new perspective is needed. In this presentation, we outline the current technological and evaluation foundation of accessible Web applications, introduce the current accessibility standardisation work at the W3C, and discuss the role of legacy assumptions in contemporary Web technology and application design.
