The Information Here Will Be Helpful To…

As much as we would like to teach WAI-ARIA to everyone — including how it is used to make web interactivity accessible to people with disabilities — the topic is very much a technical one. While you do not necessarily need to be a web developer to understand where and when WAI-ARIA should be used, in order to implement it you must be able to write code or, at a very minimum, be able to read code and understand what it is doing.

Non–web developers can still benefit from the information provided here, but they will likely find the activities very challenging without the prerequisite background knowledge. This background knowledge is beyond the scope of the materials here, so there is little to help with basic HTML formatting or JavaScript programming. The focus here is on using WAI-ARIA, not on using HTML and JavaScript.
