Exemplum illud exclusive…

How does it feel not being able to read the sentence above? This is what we are doing every day to about 217 million people with visual impairments.

As developers we don’t think very much about these numbers, and yet it’s still our responsibility to include as many people as possible in our applications.
In this talk we will learn some important Javascript automation tasks e.g. enhanced color contrast and voice interfaces. Let us dive into some best practices and real-life examples to avoid making the same mistakes all over again in the future.
