    How A Screen Reader User Surfs The Web

    In this webinar you’ll learn how and why semantic HTML helps screen reader users browse your website, whilst being mostly transparent to people who do not use an Assistive Technology (AT). Join Léonie Watson, a blind screen reader user, as she explores the web, and find out about some unexpected properties of HTML elements that not only have a huge impact on accessibility, but also turn out to be pretty good for performance too.
