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!




(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)


  • Melanie Sumner is an EmberJS core member, works for LinkedIn and focuses on the development of better accessibility tooling for JavaScript developers.


  • Heydon Pickering, of course. Although saying he just writes about accessibility of modern JavaScript would be an understatement. He has a specialized blog and ebook about building inclusive components, though.
  • 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:

    • Cauldron - "A fully accessible HTML, CSS, and Javascript front-end framework for creating web and mobile applications". Since React support is coming soon I will move Cauldron to the React section, once it hits the shelves
    • An ARIA Widget Library, over at the Deque Academy, which is also highly recommended for educational reasons
  • Lindsey Kopacz is currently preparing an online course about JavaScript and accessibility - something of which there is still too little at the moment. If you want to stay informed about when the course launches, subscribe to her newsletter.
  • 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!
