Video: Accessibility and life beyond the ALT tag

When we talk about design and the web, for some reason we don’t believe we can have our beautiful cake and access it too. Sometimes, the idea of accessibility seems like a bucket of water on a campfire—not the kind of sizzle we are want for our website. And yet I tell you, there’s hope. We’ll explore the human aspect of our work and discover how to approach accessibility in a practical manner (and with less pain that you thought possible). Learn how to create digital content that anyone can access, no matter how they do it. See a real world example of an accessible course offering, and why it works. Let’s leave behind the idea of accessibility as an afterthought, and bring it into the forethought where it belongs.
