WCAG 1.0 will be marked superseded by the end of the year. WCAG 2.1 is a nice and important modern update to WCAG 2.0.

If you always wanted to get into accessibility, this is a great time.

Hm. As browsers currently drop elements with display contents from the accessibility tree, rendering your content inaccessible, I’d say: Not at all for now.

(Write to your browser vendor to fix that bug!)

I see people who do not practice accessibility again noting how inaccessible #a11y is to ‘outsiders’. A primer: adrianroselli.com/2016/11/a11y

While having a lot of contrast is important for many aspects of accessible design, if everything has a lot of contrast, nothing has a lot of contrast.

I take some dark pleasure in citing accessibility issues on many client's "Diversity" pages. Oh, the irony.
