Topic: WCAG 2.1, Web Accessibility and Drupal 8
by: Morgan Strong
Description: This talk will give a basic overview of the update to the WCAG Standard (v2.1) and provide some practical advice about how the major principles of the guideline can be built into workflows and development teams - big and small. We'll then do a deeper dive, by setting some standard web pages on a Drupal 8 instance - such as Web forms, content pages, and media - and load some different themes to test out what some accessibility features offered by standard, common base Drupal themes.
