This presentation is driven by a singular challenge of making the custom widgets like Custom form(including custom checkboxes, combobox, etc), tab panel, Carousel, etc accessible. I will be addressing the gaps/problems that people with disabilities face while working in inaccessible environment(more specifically, in web) and exploring the ways to make the custom widgets acccessible for Assistive technologies users. Main focus of this presentation will be to get familiar with ARIA(Accessible Rich Internet Applications) and the role it plays when it comes to web accessibility.
The use of ARIA properties and attributes will be demonstrated with the help of examples. I will conclude with the advantages of using ARIA and further challenges that can be worked on as future scope.
