15th October 2018

in Nuremberg, Germany

Part of the Accessibility Club series

Hands-on workshop with Karl Groves

Forms are the #1 method for users to interact on a website - with the site owner or with each other. Forms are how content is created and how visitors convert to customers. Forms are how work is performed during our jobs. Despite their importance, usability and accessibility issues with forms outnumber all other issue types. During this full-day workshop attendees will learn how to design and develop more usable accessible forms – from design to development.

During a highly interactive and collaborative hands-on workshop, attendees will go through the process of planning, designing, and developing a form. Throughout several breakout sessions, attendees will collaborate on tasks that include:

  • Planning the form
  • Choosing the proper fields
  • Design and layout of the form
  • Accepting and processing input
  • Error prevention
  • Validation

Along the way the attendees will be creating their own form and testing their form for usability and accessibility with the ultimate goal of having a well-designed form at the end of the workshop.
