Google: sites use way too much JavaScript!

Also Google: let’s add a hundred new APIs.

🧐

Accessibility web sites that have accessibility toggles that are fixed in the viewport and overlap the main text of the site, what are they thinking?

This never ends. This year, so far, 15 out of 44 people to attend @black_in_ai@twitter.com workshop at @NeurIPSConf@twitter.com (which is still in Canada) have been denied visas. That's 33%. We had all this press last year, they were supposed to help us this year.

The robot that takes your job should pay your taxes.

Seriously, we need to start requiring automated technologies to pay into social security and Medicare. It’s an important precedent to ensure we have a tax base 100 years from now.

🏁 We're seeing more and more workshop registrations for Nov 17th coming in, which is super awesome! 63 and counting. In the lead are @karlgroves@twitter.com, @yatil@twitter.com, @raulde@twitter.com & @holgerd@twitter.com right now — who will make the workshop race? 😉 Jokes aside, they're all fantastic colloq.io/events/accessibility

Does anyone have a good code example for an accessible @stripe@twitter.com implementation. All I have found so far is reliant on placeholders which is an obvious no-go.

(Why this is the default way those forms work – I’ll never understand.)

Thanks!

It’s interesting to see some people making the claim that WebKit/Safari would make the web a bad experience on mobile and then seeing people on current Android devices struggle loading pages and keeping them in memory. Not to speak of older, less capable hardware.

I’ll be part of a panel discussion about social media accessibility @ACM_CSCW@twitter.com next Sunday in Austin, TX. Hope you can make it!

FYI, Google is trying to kill web URLs

Google wants users to use Google search as the access point for all content on the web. They are doing this by:
1. Removing visible URLs in Chrome
2. Penalizing sites for not using Google AMP
3. Removing URLs from search results
