With the growing community and great tutorials, it’s fairly easy nowadays to start building web applications with React. However, the vital aspect of accessibility is often missing which leads to web applications creating exclusions. Nothing in React prevents us from building accessible web experiences, but we need to learn to harness its power in the right way while dealing with some unique challenges caused by creating web pages with JavaScript. This talk will focus on how to solve these issues in the context of React. It’ll also emphasize why it is important to build accessible web apps. In the end, I will also share some cool things that chrome dev tools provide you in order to make your web app more accessible.
