Webinar: Drupal 8's Accessibility

Wednesday, February 3, 2016 - 06:00 to 07:00


Drupal 8 Accessibility: What We Didn't Get in Core (Yet!)


We accomplished a great deal with Drupal 7’s accessibility when it was released in 2011. In Drupal 8, the community built on this and added broader support for ARIA & ATAG, two W3C standards which were not stable in 2011. D8 has also seen many enhancements for keyboard only users, low vision users and people who are colour blind. Drupal stands as the most accessible CMS available, but there is a great deal still to be done.
We could use improvements in the usability of its aural interface. We introduced animations in Drupal 8, which can cause visually induced motion sickness for some users and we still have no means to address defining acronyms. We also need more to support for voice control. Join the webinar to explore the problems we are yet to solve, and which should be a part of core libraries for every CMS.
