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

How to Fall at Accessibility
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 #CSUNATC19AT 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).

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!

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. #a11y
Web Rumble! According to @dequesystems aXe, @foxnews home page has 312 #a11y 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!
