First Talk: How to write text alternatives
by Marc Haunschild

Providing information for non-textual content can be quite challenging and it involves a quite big
number of success criteria.
So I thought it could be a could idea to sum up all the questions, answers and examples I gave
throughout the years and make a little talk of it.

There are many different accessibility checklist you can find on Internet. But what makes a great one? And how can you integrate it to your process? These are the 2 main questions I will cover in this talk. The talk is based on my experience using an accessibility checklist for over a year in my current project.
