Live on March 24th, 2021 @ 2:00PM EST | In the past, some accessibility experts would turn off JavaScript to test a site and deem it inaccessible if they couldn’t use the site. Things have changed. Assistive technology, including screenreaders, have come a long way and can interact with JavaScript, if accessibility has been kept in mind. Surveys consistently show that over 97% of screenreader users have JavaScript enabled. Not to mention people with disabilities that don’t use screenreader software and also have JavaScript enabled. Planning for (and maintaining) a <noscript> solution is not going to make a page accessible. If you develop websites or web-based applications and use JavaScript, this training is for you!
