SUMMARY

For a long time, HTML gave us all the semantics and other goodies we needed to make things work properly on the web. Then we started inventing new UI components, and now we use ARIA and Javascript to polyfill the missing bits. As we move towards a future of Web Components, the time has come to invent another solution that will let us encapsulate accessibility in the shadow DOM - and its called the Accessibility Object Model (AOM). Join us for an evening with presenter and accessibility engineer Léonie Watson as she leads us on a journey through accessibility mechanics.

PRESENTER

Léonie is Director of TetraLogical; a member of the W3C Advisory Board; co-Chair of the W3C Web Platform Working Group; and a member of the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Advisory Committee.

Amongst other things, Léonie is co-organiser of the Inclusive Design 24 (#id24) conference; co-author of the Inclusive Design Principles; and mentor to young people interested in the fields of accessibility and inclusive design. She is also a Microsoft Most Valued Professional (MVP).

Léonie is often found at conferences, talking about web standards, accessibility mechanics, and pushing the boundaries of inclusive design (with existing technologies like SVG, HTML, ARIA, and JavaScript, as well as new technologies like AI and WebVR). She has also written about these things for Smashing magazine, SitePoint.com, and Net magazine, as well as on her own site Tink.UK.

In her spare time, Léonie likes reading, cooking, drinking tequila, and dancing (although not necessarily in that order)!
