New Edge Blog: Building a more accessible user experience with HTML5 and UIA

Yesterday the Edge team posted a new blog that walks through ongoing work to advance Edge’s accessibility. The goal is to ensure developers and users can easily get accurate information on platform accessibility across browsers, making it easier to build more accessible sites and make informed decisions when using accessibility features. The blog includes some concrete examples of how the new Edge accessibility architecture improves the end user’s experience, and specifically how markup defines the experience of navigating with assistive technologies like screen readers. The many examples in the blog focus on Narrator, but any screen reader using UIA will be able to take advantage of these improvements.

Read the full blog post about these improvements on the Microsoft Edge Developer Blog.
