The Access & Use components listed in the menu show typical dynamic web content.
Each component is presented in the same format:
- A short introduction (what is it)
- A short video (mostly screencasts) showing a typical implementation of the component in action
- Additional stuff on the component, differentiating it from similar components (optional)
- Accessibility tips for the component
- Typical usability problems when using the component
- Videos on usability, documenting the use of real component implementations in particular modes of use (keyboard-only, screen reader running, low vision/magnification); for example, for modal dialogs, we have Low vision use: Finding the modal dialog. Some components only have one or a couple of videos, others more.
- COMPARE cases - this links to the COMPARE repository and related real-world web content cases that have been documented, accessibility-rated and commented there.
- Resources for the component, pointing to best practice implementations, articles, or other stuff relevant for developers and/or evaluators
