Authoring Accessible Content Workshop • Virtual Workshop

In this workshop, Emily Lewis demonstrates how semantic HTML is the foundation for websites and an integral part of digital accessibility.

She’ll share examples of the most common accessibility problems, and how semantic HTML solves those problems — without any advanced coding knowledge or using bulky frameworks.

Emily will also demonstrate keyboard-only interactions and screen-reader announcements, so you can see and hear first-hand how semantic HTML allows people of all abilities to better interact with your content.

More users, easier to maintain code, and support accessibility requirements 

You’ll learn semantic and accessible HTML design patterns for common site content:

  • Headings
  • Lists
  • UI controls
  • Forms
  • Data tables
  • Images, video, and audio

And how these semantic patterns can be extended into building accessible interactive components with the addition of simple ARIA, CSS, and JS:

  • Disclosures
  • Accordions
  • Tabs
  • Dialogs

You’ll also learn about the power of semantic HTML beyond accessibility:

  • Lean code for faster page performance
  • Standardized code for quicker development
  • Human-readable code for easier maintenance
  • Machine-readable code for better SEO

Build a strong foundation for accessibility, speed, and SEO by developing with semantic HTML!

Key takeaways:

  • Lean code for faster page performance
  • Standardized code for quicker development
  • Human-readable code for easier maintenance
  • Machine-readable code for better SEO

Who should attend?

  • For people at all web development levels.


  • Familiarity with HTML, CSS, and browser inspect tools is helpful, but not required.

Additional Information:

  • Registration cost is per screen; invite your team to join you in a conference room so everyone can learn! (Individual links may not be shared)
  • Group & academic rates are available
  • Receive unlimited replays of the training video for one year after the video is posted
