Resources for learning about accessibility

Bookmarked Accessibility Resources (

The links below have helped me in my ongoing accessibility education. Most of these are beginner-friendly entry points to what can be a broad and sometimes complex topic.

A11y is a compact abbreviation for accessibility with 11 (eleven) representing the count of letters between the letter a and the letter y.

😅 I’ve seen A11y before and thought it was leet speak for “ally,” calling out the common problem of 1s looking like lowercase l’s in some typefaces. This… makes more sense 😂
