Today I learned
The a11y project
Today I learned about the a11y project. As you might know a11y stands for accesibility. It has 11 characters that's where the short-hand name comes from.
The a11y project is a community-driven effort to make digital accesiblity easer. They provide a ton of information on their website: the a11y project ↗ .
One of the greatest things they curate is a checklist ↗, where you can check your WCAG compliance. I'm gonna use this checklist for every new web project from now on. And it's a shame that I haven't used it before.
Other than that they provide a big list of resources ↗, be it books, newsletters, podcasts, talks, different tools or communities where you can participate to digital accessiblity.
So if you want to make the web more accessible, the a11y project seems to be a fantastic starting point to learn more about the fundamentals and principles of accessiblity.
I hope you enjoyed this post and learned something new. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter ↗ or via Email ↗.
If you want to support me, you can buy me a coffee. I would be very happy about it!☕️ Buy me a coffee ☕️
