  • ARIA landmark roles | Accessible Technology
    stands for Accessible Rich Internet Applications Its overall purpose is more fully described on the help page ARIA for Web Applications One of the easiest ARIA features to implement and one that provides significant immediate benefits to screen reader users is landmark roles There are eight of these roles each representing a block of content that occurs commonly on web pages To use them simply add a relevant role attribute to an appropriate container within your HTML Then screen reader users can quickly jump to that section of the page The eight ARIA landmark roles are role banner role navigation e g a menu role main the main content of the page role complementary e g a sidebar role contentinfo meta data about the page e g a copyright statement role search role form role application a web application with its own keyboard interface If a role is used more than once on a page the aria label attribute should also be used in order to distinguish between the two regions For example a web page might have the following two navigation regions div role navigation aria label Main menu div role navigation aria label User menu Caution Be careful using role application When role application is used there is an expectation that the application has its own model for navigating and operating all controls by keyboard and help text is easily available so users can learn the keystrokes When assistive technologies encounter content that s marked up with role application they stop listening for users keystrokes and hand off all functionality to the application This can be problematic as it defies users expectations Keys that normally perform certain functions when using their assistive technology suddenly stop providing that functionality Therefore you should use role application only when an application has been carefully developed with accessibility in mind and steps have been taken to inform users of what to expect Comments are closed Accessible Technology Our goal An inclusive university Getting Started Creating Documents Creating Videos Developing Websites Managing for accessibility Procuring IT Getting Help Events Collaboration Disability Resources Laws Policies UW accessibility highlights Developing accessible websites Accessible forms Accessible images Accessible menus Accessible tables Accessible with keyboard ARIA for Web applications ARIA landmark roles Effective use of color HTML headings Meaningful link text Tools resources Explore the UW Admissions Undergraduates Graduates UW Online Paying for college Husky Promise Financial aid estimator Continuing Education Summer quarter Academics Academic calendar Colleges Schools Departments Undergraduate learning Graduate School Course catalog Undergraduate majors Evening degree program English language programs Study abroad Graduation requirements Libraries Campus Life Husky Card Dining Student housing Student groups The HUB Husky sports IMA Diversity Hall Health Counseling Center University Book Store Computing support UW Police Holidays Leadership Board of Regents President s office Provost s office Vice presidents Vice provosts Deans and chancellors Futures Committee Government Relations Faculty Senate ASUW GPSS RHSA Portals Business Industry Diversity Educational Excellence Global Affairs Research UW Foundation Visit the UW Planning a

  • 30 Web Accessibility Tips | The Alliance for Access to Computing Careers
    not pictures of text Use text instead of pictures of text and control its appearance using CSS Pictures of text become blurry when enlarged take longer to download and are inefficient for the website author to edit Think twice about the words you choose Keep your content simple to read and understand Often web authors use larger words and longer sentences than is really necessary Caption video Captions provide benefits to all users There are many free easy to use tools available that support the process of transcribing and captioning videos Describe video For people are unable to see video create a script that includes brief descriptions of important visual content then provide that as a separate description track either as timed text or recorded narration Provide a transcript Provide a transcript for video and audio so individuals who are deaf blind and those with low Internet bandwidth can access the content Transcripts benefit all users by allowing them to access content quickly Choose media players that support accessibility Ask questions like Does this player support closed captions Does it support description Can it be operated with a mouse Are buttons and controls accessible to screen reader users Choose a dropdown menu system that works for all users Ask questions like Can this menu be operated by keyboard alone If so is doing so efficient or does it required dozens or hundreds of keystrokes Choose JavaScript widgets that support accessibility An accessible interactive widget is one that can be operated with the keyboard alone uses ARIA to communicate with assistive technology AT and degrades gracefully for users who don t have the latest AT Test JavaScript widgets don t assume they work for everyone More and more widgets claim to be accessible or 508 compliant but what does that really mean The best way to find out is to test them using a keyboard alone or using AT or to ask users with disabilities to test them Choose Learning Management Systems LMS and Content Management Systems CMS that support accessibility Make sure that your organization s LMS or CMS supports accessibility Make sure there are accessible themes plug ins and modules available that will meet your needs Test web pages with a keyboard Try navigating the web page and controlling all its features using the tab key on a keyboard don t touch the mouse This simple test is typically a good indicator of accessibility Test pages with high contrast color schemes All major operating systems have high contrast color schemes available When it is enabled make sure that all important page content is still visible Test pages with assistive technologies There are free screen readers and other AT available that can be used for testing You don t have to become an expert user but simple tests with AT can provide valuable insights into whether certain features in a document might present accessibility problems Test pages on mobile devices Growing numbers of users including users with disabilities are accessing
