Drupal is one of the best Content Management Systems out there in terms of supporting digital accessibility best practices.
Drupal developers often have some experience with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) that help us create web sites that are usable by people with disabilities, but it can be daunting to know how to translate into the content authoring experience. The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) are sister guidelines to WCAG, specifically tailored for CMS developers to enable content authoring by and for people with disabilities. This talk will take you through the guidelines laid out in ATAG. You'll expand your accessibility toolbox and be ready to better enable content authors to have more ownership of their sites' accessibility.
