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!

WCAG 1.0 will be marked superseded by the end of the year.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!)

Bad Practices on Phone Number Form Fields >> hum, I don't think you should rely on geolocation to guess phone number country prefix. Current user location might not be the same as prefix (holidays, working in another country) :/ uxmovement.com/forms/bad-pract

I'm a bit of a retro gaming aficionado. After years of wanting one, I finally bought this!

Currently preparing the weekly links article, there will be a lot of accessibility and color accessibility ressources <3

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.
