Talk: Accessible Forms and Their Implementation in Modern JavaScript Frameworks
Forms, for example signup and login pages, are extremely important for communication with users. Yet most online examples of these are currently inaccessible to many people. Almero Steyn demonstrates how to build accessible forms in HTML and then translate that to modern JavaScript applications, with React as example.
