Quick wins for an accessible website

In this talk we will demonstrate tips and tricks based on configuration and code examples to make your website (more) accessible.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) specify which requirements a website should meet to be accessible for everyone regardless of device, location or disability. Since September 2018 they’re not “just” guidelines anymore, they are obligated rules for (public) websites of EU state members. So there’s no excuse left to ignore the requirements.

No worries! We will guide you through questions like: Which Drupal modules are useful for accessibility? What kind of configuration promotes it? How could you structure your HTML in twig? How can CSS help you?

Quick wins for you, a huge win for an accessible web.
