The Web Accessibility Initiative has Updated Web Accessibility Tutorials now available from:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/



These tutorials show you how to create web content that is accessible to people with disabilities and that improves the user experience for all users. They include general guidance and specific code examples for HTML5 and WAI-ARIA for Page Structure, Menus, Images, Tables, Forms, and Carousels.



Changes include a more focused approach in the Page Structure, Menus, and Carousels tutorials, as well as:

* Page Structure Tutorial - Added guidance on labeling page regions and more detailed advice on how to use headings.

* Menus Tutorial - Added more detailed styling information, and clarified the structure and content of the fly-out and application menus pages.

* Carousels Tutorial - Moved styling considerations to a central page. Added best practice information on using ARIA to announce the current slide.

* Forms Tutorial - Updated information on placeholder contrast and focus management when an error occurs, and emphasized explicit labels.

* Images Tutorial - Added clarifications in the decision tree.

* Tables Tutorial - Minor editorial updates.



More information on what has changed is available in the changelog at:
