Last night it was good to see Martin Hatch presenting at the SharePoint User Group in London. Martin is a Solution Architect and a colleague of mine at Content and Code who has worked extensively on building accessible SharePoint solutions – most recently for the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
Key highlights for me were the use of Rendering Templates and Control Adapters to override out of the box controls and how they are displayed and function. These techniques can be used on both MOSS 2007 and SharePoint 2010, and are not solely aimed at delivering accessibility improvements.
Martin has now made available the materials from his presentation:
- PowerPoint Slides (2007 – 2010 format) (.pptx)
- PowerPoint Slides (97 – 03 format) (.ppt)
- Sample Code – SUGUK Visual Studio 2010 Solution (.zip)
- Sample Code – Control Adapters (.zip)
