Mostly unheard-of experience of many users out there. (Also, excruciatingly slow.)

(with a bit of #Accessibility in it for good measure)
"Accessibility Strategies for Your Content Team" read this, share it with anyone who need to put content in a site at some point, we need to educate our content writers about simple heading semantics, alt texts, etc! https://www.deque.com/blog/accessibility-strategies-for-your-content-team/
Happy Monday everyone. A good exploration of accessibility issues of tooltips from @firstname.lastname@example.org . Enjoy! #a11y https://sarahmhigley.com/writing/tooltips-in-wcag-21/
Last year at at Mozilla Hackathon I volunteered to tackle tool-tips. After an intervention I gave up. Sarah nicely summarizes why tool-tips are such a mess.
Tooltips: a study in why something so basic is also somehow so difficult.
(I'm trying out this whole blog thing, I hope it goes well!)

I failed to include the W3C Custom Control Accessible Development Checklist (https://w3c.github.io/using-aria/#checklist) in my post from last night (http://adrianroselli.com/2019/08/basic-custom-control-requirements.html) though it is shared on http://DoesMySiteDeserveRecognition.com.

> Until a couple of years ago, the browsers did not treat generated content as “real” content. They did not expose it to #AssistiveTechnologies like #ScreenReaders.
For visual users, the link text “Get the Report (PDF)” would have been clear. But “(PDF)” was not conveyed to screen readers and other assistive technologies […] so browsers started to treat #GeneratedContent as actual content.
Here's a general hint to get started: We value #accessibility very much over here, so please make sure to add image descriptions as well as content warnings to your #art where applicable. A lot of people only boost ("RT") images with descriptions, so this will likely increase your reach!
Thanks and happy artsing!
I think all bikes and scooters need a qr code/number so that the companies can be informed centrally and punish/charge their customers for behavior like this. Otherwise they will never learn to park their bikes/scooters properly.
I'm a wheelchair user and I'm so fucking tired of people leaving these bikes and scooters wherever they want. For able bodied folx it's an inconvenience but for me it me…
