re: I am a web developer, hard of hearing, and an a11y advocate, Ask Me Anything! VIEW POST


What do you think it will take before web developers finally take #a11y seriously and start developing for accessibility by default en masse?


This is a tough one. If people can't get with a11y simply because it's the right thing to do, I don't know if they can be convinced. I think our best shot is to reshape how web development is taught. a11y can be done well if we do it from the beginning of the project, and that's what we need to do in education.


This is one area government regulation could help. It would be really hard to enforce though.

I definitely think we need more specific laws on web accessibility. Not sure how I feel about the govn't getting in education on it though.
