Web Accessibility Crash Course
When I first started learning about accessibility, I remember feeling intimated and overwhelmed by a plethora of articles and checklists online— most of which are technical, lengthy, and boring. I just wanted to know where to start, is it really that hard? After two years of reading about the topic and experimenting, I realized that accessibility isn’t that hard, and learning it shouldn’t be either.
