Lets be honest, most developers have heard about the Document Object Model in browsers, but it’s rare to hear people talk about the role that the Accessibility API has within the DOM. In this talk we will unpack the mystery of how the browser DOM interacts with the Accessibility API, and help explain how HTML elements are used for interpretation of your website by assistive technologies.
No high level code will be shown but there will be flowcharts aimed at providing an understanding of why the way the code is written in HTML impacts how the Accessibility API will be able to interpret it.
