Dreamweaver Accessibility

Matt May & Dennis Lembree in Dreamweaver session at #AccessU

I went to Glenda Sims session at AccessU and ended up sitting by Matt May from Adobe and Dennis Lembree. You’d think with them right next to me, the iPhone camera would have done better, alas.

Glenda gave some great tips for making the most of Dreamweaver’s accessibility features. She also mentioned that WCAG 2.0 doesn’t require <th> cells to have scope=”row” or scope=”col” any longer. Instead, if the table is complex, use ids and headers.

Glenda also said that installing the WebAIM toolbar and the Worldspace plugin into Dreamweaver are two great tools to test for accessibility from within Dreamweaver.
