Accessibility on the Yahoo! Homepage by Nicholas Zakas and Victor Tsaran

Accessibility isn't hard, and contrary to popular belief, doesn't take a lot of extra effort. Learn how the Yahoo! homepage team built accessibility into the product development cycle with the goal of providing the best possible user experience to everyone. Using a combination of progressive enhancement, ARIA, and a little ingenuity, even the most complex and dynamic features on the new Yahoo! homepage's are available to everyone in interesting and fun ways.
