Accessibility in Drupal 8 has come a long way since Drupal 7. Drupal 8 has added extensive support for accessibility in Core. From small changes like font size and color contrast, to large changes like WAI-ARIA in core, Drupal 8 will make it easier to build an accessible site. For anyone trying to make a barrier-free website, it’s important to understand the new features and how each can be used.

In this webinar, Mike Gifford, Drupal 8’s Core Accessibility Maintainer, will cover the variety of accessibility features that Drupal 8 offers, including:

• WAI-ARIA

• Colour Contrast and Low Vision
• Alt Tags and Defaults

• Tables
• Errors
