People and projects
I started this list originally in my blog in order to collect folks and projects that are worth checking out when it comes to web-app accessibility. Being totally aware that it is most definitely incomplete: in case you know of any other people, projects and initiatives, contribute to this list via GitHub, or drop me a line via e-mail!
- There's Ryan Florence Reach UI project - its aim is to become the accessible foundation of your React-based design system.
- Tenon UI follows the same goal and is created by Almero Steyn and Job van Achterberg
- Hugo Giraudel is currently working on the N26 online banking web app (read my interview with Hugo here) and writing about it: on their blog, on twitter and at conferences.
- The Australian Government opensourced their design system (MIT Licence) and supplies HTML samples, extensive accessibility meta data (Color impairment simulation, Keyboard tabbing simulation, typical mobile and desktop screen reader output...) - and last but not least ready-made accessible React components (direct link to their GitHub repo.)
- Scott Vinkle has created an inclusive React Demo App (Source code) and wrote the article "Creating accessible React Apps"
- Starting January 17th, 2019 you can add Marcy Sutton to the React side of things. In her past she helped the Angular project's accessibility
- Vuetify is based on Google's Material Design System which supplies a solid accessible foundation for Vue components
- Alan Ktquez, Callum McRae, Victoria Bergquist and others have started the vue-a11y project and, until the time of writing, released vue-axe, vue announcer and vue skipto.
- Maria Lamardo teaches a course about accessibility on VueSchool.io
- Oscar Braunert gives great talks and starts great projects regarding accessibility in Vue (on of them is tournant UI)
- Austin Gil built vuetensils, a helper component library with accessibility in mind.
- VueVixens offer a half day workshop called "Build an Accessible Memory Game". Anyone interested could read all of its structure and contents, and find all necessary code on a dedicated page.
- Chakra UI released a Vue.js version in May 2020.
(I must confess, I have no overview of the angular a11y world, so I can only present the one Angular finding in my "accessibility" bookmarks)
- Emiliy Mears both writes about inclusive strategies for React and Vue on Medium
- Rob Dodson, who published, among other things the great a11ycasts video series, which has a large overlap with the accessibility of web apps
Deque has to ressources:
- An ARIA Widget Library, over at the Deque Academy, which is also highly recommended for educational reasons
- Suzanne Aitchison runs upyoura11y (I love a good pun!) where she offers
tutorials and resources for developers seeking to build accessible web experiences. Currently it has a focus on React. I think it is a good complement to the current (involuntary) focus on Vue.js on accessible-app.com!
