For a long time, HTML gave us all the semantics and other goodies we

needed to make things work properly on the web. Then we started

inventing new UI components, and now we use ARIA and Javascript to

polyfill the missing bits. As we move towards a future of Web

Components, the time has come to invent another solution that will let

us encapsulate accessibility in the shadow DOM - and its called the

Accessibility Object Model (AOM). Join us for an evening with presenter and accessibility engineer Léonie Watson as she leads us on a journey through accessibility mechanics.


Presenter Bio

Léonie Watson began using the internet in 1993, turned it into a career in 1997, and (despite losing her eyesight along the way), she’s been enjoying herself thoroughly ever since. Léonie is Director of Developer Communications at The Paciello Group (TPG), and a member of the W3C Advisory Board. She is also co-chair of the W3C Web Platform Working Group, where she is responsible for many specifications including IndexedDB, Push API, Pointer Lock API, Gamepad API, ARIA in HTML, and the HTML Accessibility API Mapppings (AAM). Léonie contributes to projects like the Inclusive Design Principles, and co-organises the Inclusive Design 24 #ID24 conference with friends from TPG. She is a mentor for young people learning programming with Microsoft’s Project Torino, and was technical editor for Laura Kalbag’s book Accessibility For Everyone. Léonie is often found at conferences, talking about web standards, accessibility mechanics, and pushing the boundaries of inclusive design (with existing technologies like SVG, HTML, ARIA, and JavaScript, as well as new technologies like AI and WebVR). She has also written about these things for Smashing magazine, SitePoint.com, and Net magazine, as well as on her own site Tink.UK. In her spare time, Léonie likes reading, cooking, drinking tequila, and dancing (although not necessarily in that order)!
