Accessibility is more than alt tags and even major companies are failing at the most obvious code choices when it comes to doing more. This talk will cover topics from basic considerations to accessibility ‘gotchas’, the wide range of accessibility concerns, and simple ways to make huge improvements.

While much of what is talked about will be from a developer's perspective, designers, product managers, and others can benefit from understanding these concepts and what is and isn't possible from a development perspective.

Lindsey Dragun is a full-stack developer at PBS and part of a team that advocates for and educates on accessibility.
