About this session

Web forms are crucial for user interactions on the web, and to ensure our products provide an inclusive experience for all, we need to build them with accessibility in mind. In this talk, we'll dive into best practices and practical tips for crafting web forms that are accessible and won't leave anyone behind.

We'll start by focusing on how assistive technology works on the web. We'll then discuss common patterns in forms and how to implement them accessibly, including strategies for managing focus states, labelling, displaying errors and validation and more. All supported by practical examples.
