Dynamic content and HTML5 technologies are rapidly become a standard part of web design. This session will provide an overview of how to use the Accessible Rich Internet Accessibility (ARIA) technologies and HTML5 to improve the accessibility of dynamic web content.

Jon will also cover issues with some features of HTML5 that can cause accessibility problems and present open source tools for evaluating WCAG 2.0 compliance using the OpenAjax accessibility evaluation library.

The session will encourage participation by using the websites of participants to illustrate the accessibility features of ARIA and HTML5 and to demonstrate the capabilities of the Open Source evaluation tools.
