Selfish Accessibility at Buffalo Unconference

Yesterday I presented a stripped-down version of my Selfish Accessibility talk at Buffalo Unconference. With an unknown audience and a 20 minute timeline, I gutted most of the technical bits and focused on my thesis. I think it was well received. At the end of the talk, I pointed people…

CSS Bookmarklets for Testing and Fixing

Animated image showing the Pinterest site and its infuriating blocking overlay, which is removed with the bookmarklet below. I regularly have to test sites in development, review some third-party site, or just use a site in my day-to-day time wasting (and banking) rituals. I’ve relied on viewing the page’s source…

On Use of the Lang Attribute

Way back in October I noticed this WHATWG HTML bug (26942) where someone asked why do these examples of <html> lack the lang attribute? I thought the answer from Hixie was a bit dismissive and not based on any data or real-world benefits of use, particularly in the context of…

Don’t Use Tabindex Greater than 0

Animated GIF showing the tab order on a page using the default Re-CAPTCHA, which sets a tabindex, forcing a keyboard user through six tab-stops to get to the Skip to content link. Tabindex had the potential to be a useful attribute. A developer could set the order in which focus…

HTML5 Is Now a W3C Recommendation

I was already pretty excited when I read on the W3C Accessibility Task Force mailing list that the formal objection against longdesc was overruled. But then this — HTML5 is a wrap. I’ve seen some movement on the Twitters (and the W3C HTML Working Group mailing list) over the last…
