Open Source Accessibility NOW!

Open Source means nothing to the larger accessibility community. That is a problem. Proprietary solutions limit access to vital accessibility tools. This presentation outlines existing Open Source accessibility solutions while asking the question "Why aren’t there more Open Source a11y tools?" The presentation is meant to be both a survey of existing solutions and a call to action for new Open Source solutions. Web Accessibility stagnates without more Open Source A11y tools.

This session will investigate the hidden questions in the websites and applications we build: Who is this for? Who is able to use it? Who is unable to use it? Why is this the case? What previous experiences, assumptions, and understandings do we incorporate into the things we create? By exploring the process by which my organization rebuilt its website, I’ll provide examples and methods for going beyond simply meeting WCAG guidelines—instead, reaching for a new way of thinking about technology, our place in its development, and our work overall.

A lot of eslint rules and reusable components already exist for accessibility in HTML, Javascript and React. When working with developers with varying levels of theoretical and practical experience with accessibility implementations, we realised that the mistakes that our devs were making with respect to accessible implementations, were either not general enough to have an existing eslint rule and / or the mitigation was very specific to the usages in our codebase. We started with a simple thought: can we automate the detection and fixes for these repeated mistakes?
