Important notice about the «ADG» project

Important notice: Due to large demand, the «Accessibility Developer Guide» project (currently a proof of concept with low priority) will become a top priority priority in 2017. We will make this guide become what it deserves to be for so long already: a comprehensive resource for all folks interested in accessibility. For this we need your support!

Things to consider when choosing a widget

  • Creating accessible JavaScript widgets is an art
  • Even widgets claiming to be accessible often are not
    • Be sure to thoroughly test the widget on accessibility
  • Different screenreaders behave differently
  • Often, widgets don't offer real value to the user, they're only looking nice
    • If that's the case, better drop it and use traditional ways of presenting content
  • Take look at our widgets section, where we offer reviews about some well-known 3rd party widgets
