Make screenreaders insert extra content, change pronunciations, or forget an element’s semantics altogether – with just a few lines of everyday CSS! Join us as we dive into some unexpected ways the CSS we write can impact and interfere with screenreader users’ experiences, challenge the separation of presentation and content, go on a tour through browser and operating system internals, and see how our website is exposed to assistive technology behind the scenes.
