European authorities published accessibility reports from multiple EU lands and I decided to read all of them and make short summary with my personal comment about them. A lot can be learned from their first auditing and there is a lot that can and need to be improved throughout Europe.
Authentication will also be a part of WCAG, at least it is planned to be an level AA success criterion in the WCAG version 2.2 when it will be officially published. Nevertheless – I think standardization of authentication will benefit a lot of people.
Online shopping must be more accessible and it must happen now. Pandemics, quarantines and isolation are for sure one of the strongest reasons, but if you are a shop owner in the EU you should also consider the legal part of it. There are for sure also returns of investment, but please do the right thing and stop discriminating people with disabilities!
It’s smart to have a plan before making changes and this post is sketching my plans to improve accessibility knowledge and also help others in 2022.
First days of new year are perfect for a summarization of previous year – I like to call it retrospective. What I did for myself and also something I did for my employer and our customers… Happy new year!
