The A11Y Project

Accessibility can be a complex and difficult topic. The Accessibility Project understands this and wants to help make it easier to implement on the web. Our goal is to accomplish this with three principles in mind:

  1. Digestible. We strive to feature short, digestible pieces of content.
  2. Up-to-date. The project is hosted on GitHub so information can be current with the latest standards.
  3. Forgiving. People make mistakes, so we seek to be encouraging.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day

May 17th is Global Accessibility Awareness Day. See the source link for more. The participate page is a great list of things to test for and be aware of.

The target audience of GAAD is the design, development, usability, and related communities who build, shape, fund and influence technology and its use. While people may be interested in the topic of making technology accessible and usable by persons with disabilities, the reality is that they often do not know how or where to start. Awareness comes first.

What Web Can Do Today

A screenshot of the linked site.

Ever get annoyed by people who tell you the web will never compare to native apps and wish you could send them a comprehensive slap in website form? If so, this is pretty awesome. Not only does it list a lot of things there are modern web APIs for, it also displays whether your current browser supports each one.
