Accessibility Tip: If you use og:image on your site, don't forget og:image:alt. ;-)

This works on other social media outlets, so it would sure be nice if @Mastodon supported it, too!

From The Paciello Group:

"Every year, folks from TPG head to CSUN to chat about accessibility and share their knowhow. And in our CSUN 2019 Round-up, our presenters from recap their talks and share their slides..."

Really loved what @tatianatmac (twitter) had to say on @alistapart (twitter) today. Important read for anybody who works in tech (and beyond).

Told my brother that the web was 30 today and he wanted to know when we were going to fix the back button. Told him I'd open a ticket. Who should I assign it to?

Are you building a multilingual #PWA? Can you share how you’re localizing your Web App Manifest and how you like your current solution? What are the challenges? Pain points? Successes?

So has accessibility now gone mainstream because of Beyoncé's (inaccessible) website? Well, better late than never.

Hi aspiring #a11ycats! If you can’t afford to take my @skillshare class on accessibility, I am happy to provide you with a code so you can watch it for free.

In return I ask that you write an *honest* review and share the class with your peers!

Wow, Just trying #Mastalab and am finding that literally no graphical button has a contentDescription. This makes it virtually impossible to use the app as a Talkback user. :-( #a11y #accessibility

Hey. @Medium@twitter.com is not the place to put #a11y writing. It does not support image alt text. Please stop (using Medium).

A reminder to all to check out the fantastic articles being posted on 24 Accessibility this month. So many wonderful and inspiring reads about digital inclusion and accessibility!

After examining bunches of web sites and their keyboard support, @mmatuzo@twitter.com confirms it’s a mess out there. 24a11y.com/2018/i-threw-away-m

If you manage developers, don't keep sending accessibility issues to your specialists to fix. The best thing you can do is share those tasks across entire dev team. The greener the dev, the better. It is the only way they will learn and future work will be better for it.

Happy ! and have informed every design and development decision I have made in the past 15 years and have never let me down.

Web Rumble! According to @dequesystems aXe, @foxnews home page has 312 issues, while @CNN has 118. Page weight ~2MB for both. However, Fox works well when JS is disabled. CNN renders header and footer only. Winner, while painful to say: @foxnews PE FTW! Work on a11y tho!
