Compare code of accessibility barriers with a screen reader

I will demonstrate what the top 5 accessibility barriers are for screen reader users. We will interact with problematic code with a screen reader to get a good idea of what the issues are. We will discuss simple rewrites to improve accessibility. We will compare improved and old code behaviour. We will go through problematic alternate text, poorly labelled forms, lack of headings, badly formed data tables, and keyboard navigation.
