A gentle introduction to assistive technologies (predominantly screen readers), their users, and the accessibility tree.

It will be explained how Javascript can both make well-designed websites more accessible, as well as make well-designed websites inaccessible. This will initially look at vanilla JavaScript. This will latterly involve the new issues introduced by frameworks such as the frameworks such AngularJS. In both cases, best practices and common gotchas will be explained. The talk will be lighthearted, simple, and focus on skills that any web developer can use.
