Practical Accessibility for Web Developers: Form Controls
Have you noticed a communication gap between web developers and accessibility testers? Are you frustrated that the accessibility testers can't always tell you what needs to be fixed in order to be compliant?

For me, yes to all three. That's why I created this course.
This course is for web developers that want to create accessible web forms; but don't want to hear someone comb through every criterion of WCAG.
In this course we'll cover the following form elements and talk about how to make sure they are WCAG 2.1/2.2 compliant:
Labels (Traditional and Hidden)
Fieldsets and Groups
Marking Required Fields
and much more including ARIA attributes, screen readers, and pitfalls!
While this course is geared toward web developers - accessibility testers, designers, or anyone else that has a stake or interest in WCAG 2.1/2.2 compliant web forms gain value from it.
If you're considering taking this course, I recommend you have at least beginner-level knowledge of the following:
