Accessibility (or a11y) is an important but often neglected in the world of web development. Many developers find themselves coding user interfaces without any knowledge of keyboard or screen reader requirements.

The fact is that accessibility doesn't happen by accident. Often it is seen as too hard or time consuming. This doesn't have to be the case. By following a handful of high-value patterns and practices, we can open our web apps to humans that otherwise wouldn't be able to interact with them at all.

This course will introduce you to accessibility through hands-on, technical examples that are way more effective than reading 10-year-old static web content.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    I really liked this course ! It gave me a good introduction to Accessibility plus a few tricks and tips. It made me want to dive more into this subject. I already started to improve my projects with the WAVE tool extension in Firefox :) I'll move to the 'Develop Accessible Web Apps with React' course now.

    Thank you Marcy !

    What did you like about this course?

    This course is amazing! I'm new to Egghead so not sure if the order of sections was designed for a linear course or if each section came from a different context, but I found each topic extremely helpful. I will definitely dive deeper into accessible web design now.

    It was a really great overview and right after that I started reading the w3c guides on accessibility. Thanks for sharing that Marcy :)
