API and DOM

  • Joshue O. Connor

Abstract

In this chapter, we’ll consider how screen readers work in more detail and take a look at the DOM and accessibility APIs that are used by assistive technology (AT) to access web content. This is important to understand. Although some of this stuff might seem a little abstract or academic and this chapter is not vital for you to build accessible HTML5 content, it will help. By design, it’s also short.
