Overview: This webinar will show how to use the Accessible Rich Internet Accessibility (ARIA 1.0) technologies and HTML5 to improve page navigation, links and form controls to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA requirements. The webinar will provide coding practices for using headings (H1-H6), ARIA Landmarks and HTML5 Section elements to provide redundant and meaningful navigation, including an open source script for creating a page navigation feature for keyboard-only users. The webinar will show how to use ARIA techniques to provide link context to meet WCAG 2.0 link requirements. New HTML5 form control features and ARIA technologies also make it much easier to provide information on required and invalid form controls and reference error information.
