Virtual Workshop: Translating Design Wireframes into Accessible HTML/CSS

This live, 2-day virtual workshop is no longer available.

For a pared down version, you can check out the on-demand Translating Design Wireframes into Accessible HTML/CSS webinar


Workshop Overview

The most efficient way to build accessible websites and apps is to “shift left” by incorporating accessibility testing into the earliest stages of your development and design process.

We will walk you through the process of analyzing a wireframe from an accessibility perspective, making coding decisions to optimize for accessibility, implementing that code, testing your code, and troubleshooting. 

This 2-day online workshop will take the form of a sprint in miniature. You will work with Deque experts to…

  • Learn which accessibility-specific annotations should be made for your wireframes
  • Turn those wireframes into requirements
  • Prioritize and assign tasks
  • Learn how to approach implementing accessible web components and the challenges you may face
  • Build the components
  • Test the components
  • Manage accessibility systematically

This will be a highly interactive workshop focused on giving you practical experience integrating accessibility into the design and development process and helping you build your accessibility problem solving skills. Each session will include a mid-point break and plenty of time for Q&A.
