First Website Accessibility Agreement Reached With WCAG 2.1 As Its Standard
By Lainey Feingold.
“On November 2, 2018 Alameda County California, three blind residents,
and the National Federation of the Blind announced a settlement
designed to protect the rights of blind voters to participate fully in
the county’s voting program.”

Fear is a Poor Motivator for Accessibility
By Lainey Feingold.
“This is a post about what happens when organizations work on
accessibility only because they are afraid of being sued. Six years
ago Jared Smith wrote about bad motivators for access. He wrote that
the best motivators are to reward, enlighten, and inspire. The worst
motivators are guilt and punishment. Today in the United States the
fear of lawsuits is driving too many access efforts. Lawsuits can be
important tools to protect rights. But they can also be used for the
wrong reasons. Those lawsuits can hurt disabled people needing to use
the law when the lack of access creates true barriers to technology
and information.”

Exclusions Will Hopefully Be Like More Powerful Grid-Friendly Floats

performance or focus states among many, many other things…We should
see front-end development as a unique skillset that is critical to the

Designing for Cognitive Differences
By Brandon Gregory.
“Accessible design is often reduced to adding alt text and avoiding
colors imperceptible by colorblindness. While physical differences are
an important component of accessible design, cognitive differences are
often ignored entirely. Brandon Gregory considers three common
types-inattention, anxiety, and depression-and how they impact their
users, patterns that trigger those conditions, and how designers can
be more conscientious when design for them.”

all accessibility standards…Universal design is one-size-fits-all.
Inclusive design is one-size-fits-one…”

use to wrap data to make it machine readable…”
