Searching for feat
When it comes to learning Git, most folks I’ve talked to (myself included) have taken the slow and gentle path toward becoming proficient by adding it incrementally to their existing development processes. We begin by just running git init on an almost finished project and adding everything with a commit message such as start. Then, […]Continue Reading A Git Workflow Walkthrough – Feature Branches
I may as well come out and say it. In 2010, I leapt directly from Dreamweaver to vim as my primary editor. (I’ve been told that I may be the only person ever to have made this jump, but have no concrete evidence to substantiate this claim.) I had grown tired of Dreamweaver’s engorged appetite […]Continue Reading Sessions: The vim Feature You Probably Aren’t Using

Three years ago we announced our work on the ARIA-AT program to develop an interoperability testing system for assistive technologies, starting with screen readers. Last year we completed a redesign of the ARIA Practices Giude (APG), which web developers use for guidance on making accessible websites and apps. We’ve been hard at work along the […]Continue Reading ‘Can I Use…’, but for ARIA!
Our co-worker thought we were heartless monsters. This is a slight exaggeration, but an important lesson about what gets lost in translation when apps aren’t entirely accessible. During an experimental Zoom call, we learned that screen readers and the reactions feature aren’t quite compatible. That means that every time during a call when someone mentioned […]Continue Reading Making Zoom Calls More Accessible
After a successful launch in 2022 we’re extremely excited to continue the journey in 2023! Interoperability across browsers is not just frustrating for web developers, but also for users whose experience can vary wildly. Interop 2023 will continue the effort to increase interoperability, especially in high priority areas. Better interoperability is an issue of access […]Continue Reading Interop 2023
Our 2022 This past year we continued to fine tune our commitment to accessibility, inclusion and justice on the web through our projects, processes, and team trainings. We grew our team substantially, partnered with some very rad folks, and committed to worker-ownership and a four day work week. Growing our Team We added three new […]Continue Reading 2022 Year in Review
So geographers, in Afric maps With savage pictures fill their gaps And o’er uninhabitable downs Place elephants for want of towns This snippet from 18th century writer John Swift’s epic poem “Poetry: A Rhapsody” demonstrates that for centuries we have grappled with the politics of drawing borders, naming places, and mapping. There is no such […]Continue Reading No Neutral Map
We are excited to announce the launch of a redesign of the ARIA Authoring Practices Guide (APG), an essential resource that shows web developers how to make accessible versions of common user interface design patterns, such as comboboxes, dialog modals, and menu bars. In coordination with the W3C APG Task Force and Education and Outreach […]Continue Reading Redesigning ARIA Authoring Practices Guide
Earth Day 2022 My generation was raised in the bosom of corporate greenwashing. Every year on Earth Day I remember gathering with my classmates to learn about our role in protecting the environment. We were constantly reminded of the dire need for us to separate our recyclables (and to shame our parents in to doing […]Continue Reading What if Technology was Created for the Benefit of All Life on Earth?
