Web Accessibility for Advanced Components

Web Accessibility for Advanced Components


How do we craft advanced components for people who use screen readers or rely on keyboard navigation?
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to provide an equally good user experience to visually impaired users. We’ll talk about 7 mistakes developers often make that hurt usability and will discuss how we can remedy this.

Before the webinar’s start, participants will receive an interactive example so they can run the screen reading demo.

Note: This event will be held online and is free of charge. A link to the webinar will be sent to your email after registration.

Nice to have
Some experience with HTML and JS will be helpful.

The presentation will discuss

- Why building inclusive interfaces matters
- Which the most popular screen readers are
- Focus management techniques
- How to hear your component
- Ways to provide accessible names and descriptions
- When and how to hide things from screen readers

Rosen Kanev Senior Front-End Developer

Rosen Kanev Senior Front-End Developer

Looking back to where it all started, Rosen sees software development as just a hobby for him initially. He enjoyed it so much, though, that it soon grew into a full-time job, and now he’s been part of MentorMate for over 4 years. He’s leading 1 of the teams building an app for on-demand help for stress, anxiety, and depression with almost 800k monthly active users.

He says that what he loves most about working as a front-end developer is the opportunity to make a delightful user experience. As for his free time, he likes to read fantasy novels and has recently picked up a new hobby — he’s an amateur horticulturist focusing on garden and landscape design.
