We can pretend that we’re helping others by making websites and
software accessible, but we are really making them better for our
future selves. Learn some fundamentals of accessibility and how it can
benefit you (whether future you from aging or you after something else
limits your abilities). We’ll review simple testing techniques, basic
features and enhancements, coming trends, and where to get help. This
is an overall primer for those who aren’t sure where to start nor how
it helps them.
Adrian is a member of the W3C Web Platform Working Group, W3C ARIA

for trade journals, web sites, and participated as an author and
editor on five books. In 1998 he co-founded a software development
consulting firm before leaving at the start of 2016. Some may
recognize Adrian from his days helping to run evolt.org, one of the
first communities for web developers. Adrian has been developing for
the Web since 1993.
