商品描述

Approximately 15% of the global population is affected by some sort of disability, according to the World Report on Disability. Many C-Suite executives perceive digital accessibility (DA) as an endless task. Among the engineering leaders, one in four leaders are reliant on very limited knowledge about digital accessibility. Many countries are increasing their legislative efforts to make web accessibility an important part in web development and testing of software releases. Numerous organizations are facing extreme turbulence when not adhering to international accessibility guidelines while developing their software's and website applications.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a global guide on accessibility recommendations that are developed through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to help organizations to meet minimum standard accessibility guidelines. It has become critical for every organization to focus on implementing the accessibility checks at every stage of their application development to avoid costly mistakes. Meanwhile, the need for front-end engineers and Quality Assurance (QA) test analysts to learn WCAG best practices is immensely important for the growing need to incorporate accessibility-focused inclusive design, development, and extensive accessibility testing, which are essential for most of the customer-facing websites.

In a fast-paced world, incorporating shift left accessibility within development and testing is the new normal. The Web Accessibility Project: Development and Testing Best Practices helps developers address right accessibility attributes to user interface (UI) components. It also helps developers focus on developing manual and automation tests for QA professionals to inject accessibility audit, accessibility functional tests, and accessibility automation tests as part of their Continuous Integration and Continuous Development (CI/CD) models. The book is filled with readily usable best practices to adapt web accessibility early in application development.

By applying the accessibility best practices covered in this book, developers can help their organizations rise to a whole new level of accessibility adherence, innovation, and inclusive design. They will also see greater work satisfaction in their professional lives and a way to help improve digital accessibility for end users.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

根據《世界殘疾報告》,全球約有15%的人口受到某種形式的殘疾影響。許多高層管理人員認為數位無障礙性(DA)是一個無止境的任務。在工程領導者中,四分之一的領導者對數位無障礙性的知識非常有限。許多國家正在加大立法力度,將網頁無障礙性納入網頁開發和軟體發布測試的重要部分。許多組織在開發軟體和網站應用時,如果不遵守國際無障礙性指南,將面臨極大的困難。

《網頁內容無障礙性指南》(WCAG)是一個全球性的無障礙性建議指南,由世界網路聯盟(W3C)制定,旨在幫助組織達到最低標準的無障礙性指南。對於每個組織來說,專注於在應用程式開發的每個階段實施無障礙性檢查,以避免昂貴的錯誤,已變得至關重要。與此同時,對於前端工程師和品質保證(QA)測試分析師來說,學習WCAG最佳實踐對於將無障礙性專注的包容性設計、開發和廣泛的無障礙性測試納入日益增長的客戶面向網站需求至關重要。

在快節奏的世界中,將無障礙性納入開發和測試中已成為新常態。《網頁無障礙性專案:開發和測試最佳實踐》幫助開發人員確定適當的無障礙性屬性以應用於使用者介面(UI)元件。它還幫助開發人員專注於為QA專業人員開發手動和自動化測試,以將無障礙性審核、無障礙性功能測試和無障礙性自動化測試納入其持續整合和持續開發(CI/CD)模型。該書充滿了可立即使用的最佳實踐,以在應用程式開發的早期適應網頁無障礙性。

通過應用本書中介紹的無障礙性最佳實踐,開發人員可以幫助他們的組織在無障礙性遵從、創新和包容性設計方面達到全新水平。他們還將在職業生涯中獲得更大的工作滿足感,並幫助改善終端用戶的數位無障礙性。
