TAFE – A11y





Me and the other front-end developer spent quite a lot of effort into accessibility. Especially, I have personally met and worked with a staff member who actually had to use a screen reader to interact with the website because of his eye condition.

Working with him gave me so much valuable experience and helped me realize that just passing WCAG AA is way not enough to make the website accessible. There are much more than just checking WCAG level such as making web pages keyboard-accessible and providing necessary information when there were any changes happening on the screen.

Since then, the accessibility became one of my most important areas and I always make sure web pages and components I build is accessible.
