Prototyping Accessibility — WordCamp Europe 2018

WordCamp Europe has wrapped up in Belgrade. I presented a (not quite) three hour workshop on accessibility, specifically designed to be computer-free. I may have re-used a few slides from my presentation at last year’s WordCamp, but overall this is new material with some WCAG 2.1 references thrown in for…

GitHub Contributions Chart

Perhaps a testament to how little I might value GitHub contributions. GitHub profile pages are, to many, the de facto place to quickly judge the value of a developer. The contributions chart is an at-a-glance visual indicator of that value. I disagree completely with the notion of the chart (or…

A Responsive Accessible Table

Painfully slow demonstration of the example table resizing and different media queries kicking in. After writing (again) that it is ok to use tables, and after providing quick examples of responsive tables, I received questions about why I used some of the code I did. I am going to attempt…

Hey, It’s Still OK to Use Tables

Baby Boomerangutuang, one of the Tick’s students. He was just shouting It’s OK to play with dolls! Consider this post to be the sequel to my 2012 post It’s OK to Use Tables. Here I will go into bit more detail based on the state of accessible efforts I see…

Avoid Emoji as Class Names

The title of this post is not broad enough. Avoid emoji as any identifier, whether as strings in your script, IDs on your elements, classes for your CSS, and so on. As soon as you start using emoji, you are blocking some users from being able to understand or use…

What’s New in WCAG 2.1

I field questions pretty regularly about what is coming in WCAG 2.1. I have offered links to the spec, pointers to W3C mailing list email, references to other posts (most recently David MacDonald’s post that looks at the same version as this post), but have avoided gathering them in one…

Inaccessible YouTube Embeds

Most of us in the accessibility biz (do we call it that? I think we call it that…) already know that YouTube’s default embed code is problematic. Specifically, the fact that the <iframe> does not have a title attribute is an automatic WCAG 2.0 AA failure. The Existing title Issue…

Under-Engineered Custom Radio Buttons and Checkboxen

I keep seeing overly-complex controls with additional elements as style hooks, scripting to make up for non-semantic replacements, images that need to be downloaded, and so on. This is silly. Here are some really simple styles to make radio buttons and checkboxes look unlike native controls (which seems to be…
