The Accessibility Project is a community–driven effort to make web accessibility easier. We attempt to make #A11Y tips and tricks easier to digest and leveraging a community of developer knowledge.
Our goal is to accomplish this with 3 tenets in mind:
- Digestible. Articles on accessibility tend to be in-depth. We feature short, digestible pieces of content.
- Up-to-date. The project is hosted on Github so information can be current with the latest standards.
- Forgiving. People make mistakes and web accessibility is hard, so we seek to be encouraging.
