Conclusion

In this chapter, we had a good intro to some accessible JavaScript techniques, as well as the excellent WAI-ARIA specification. We covered some of the basics that you need to be aware of when using scripting in your web sites and applications. More advanced techniques can then be built upon solid accessible foundations. You can build complex scripted interfaces that will work, and I hope this chapter helped to show you that it is as much about your approach as anything else. In the next chapter we will look at how screen-reading technology works, what’s going on under the hood in terms of the DOM, accessibility APIs, and the off-screen model (OSM).
