This page demonstrates how to make a modal window as accessible as possible to assistive technology users. Modal windows are especially problematic for screen reader users. Often times the user is able to "escape" the window and interact with other parts of the page when they should not be able to. This is partially due to the way screen reader software interacts with the Web browser.
Hier, je faisais le ménage dans les fichiers de mon ordinateur et suis tombé sur les slides à propos de Vendre l’Accessibilité (que vous pouvez consulter dans les présentations (en anglais)). Ça m’a également rappelé deux trucs qui traînaient sur mon bureau depuis un moment, que j’ai « empruntés » dans ma chambre au Marriott de San Diego pendant la conférence CSUN de l’année dernière : l’affiche de la douche et l’affiche des serviettes. [NDT : dans l'article original suivent des images de ces affiches]

Accessibility expert and WebAIM associate director Jared Smith has warned us all to stop using carousels.

My career has been blessed with many mentors, but few have had a more profound effect on my work, and my career, than Ethan Marcotte. We worked together on the imagining, responsive design, prototyping and launch of The Boston Globe’s new website — BostonGlobe.com — in 2011. In fact, he actually coined the phrase “responsive web design” in his May 2010 A List Apart article, a phrase now as ubiquitous in our digital journalism vernacular as “content management systems” and “mobile.” His book on the topic was published in 2011. Over the years, he has written many articles for A List Apart and is co-author of Designing With Web Standards 3rd Edition and of Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design. In 2012, he was named in Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business.” Formerly, Ethan worked as a designer for Happy Cog, and many of his clientele have been journalism-oriented publications, including People Magazine, New York Magazine and (of course) The Boston Globe. Read on to learn more about his perspective on web design, accessibility and how digital storytellers and publishers grow audience and increase reach.
