DHTML Accessibility for Web Applications
Slot: 14:00-15:30, Wednesday 24th MayThis new DHTML Accessibility technology allows the creation of user interface elements (menus, tree views, tab panels, etc.) for the Web which are fully accessible. This demonstration will show fully keyboard accessible components created on a Web page working with a screen reader. By adding the appropriate semantic data to web components and having user agents translate this to the platform accessibility application programming interfaces (APIs), the user interface of a web site can be fully accessible. These new Web components will work in the same manner as a client application graphical user interface. Full accessibility is imperative as more companies are moving applications to the Web.
