HTML5 & Accessibility
I'm interested in the community's thoughts on the intersection of HTML5-based delivery and the requirement to develop accessibility-compliant courses (508 and/or WCAG).
- Fundamentally, when the need arises is it because the course will be consumed on mobile devices via those requiring accessibility OR is the course still consumed via a desktop browser but Flash delivery is no longer acceptable (or allowed)?
- In either case, how frequently does this need arise?
- For truly mobile delivery, are the capabilities of the device or operating system utilized? For example, the built-in text to speech capabilities of some mobile operating systems.
- Has the role of screen readers evolved alongside the growth of HTML5 usage?
Thanks in advance!
