THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

Client-side MV* frameworks have become must-have tools for today’s web development projects. Without extra care, however, many people won’t be able to understand, perceive or operate our web applications. Who are these people, and what prevents them from using our projects?

In this talk, AngularJS core contributor Marcy Sutton will highlight common accessibility challenges in client-rendered apps and discuss how Angular has begun supporting developers with accessibility features baked right into the framework, proving that although it’s easier with accessibility in mind from the beginning, it’s never too late to start.
