Great new ARIA video: “Developing Accessible Widgets Using ARIA”

December 9, 2008

Does your page use JavaScript for dynamic effects, widgets or content updates? Want to make sure it’s accessible? If so, check out Yahoo’s new video Developing Accessible Widgets using ARIA.

Todd Kloots uses real examples to cover setting up the ARIA development and testing environment, landmark roles, widgets, enabling complex widgets with progressive enhancement, keyboard navigation, live regions, custom widgets and more.

A big thank you to Todd Kloots and Yahoo! for putting this together.


New blog

July 22, 2008

After trying out Blogsome, I’ve migrated my nascent blog to WordPress.com because of the more flexible anti-spam measures. Originally I didn’t think I could get a look and feel that I wanted. The masthead is a photo of the insides of some old machinery at a castle in Heidelberg. If only I could remember what the machine was for … hopefully not torture!

Blogsome apparently does not allow authors to create a blog without the use of CAPTCHAs. Thanks, but no thanks!
