Here are my top 10 plugins for managing, organizing, and polishing my design system in @figma.

A thread (pt.2).
Appearance by @glmrvn

This plugin helps generate a dark and light theme from your UI kit styles.

The plugin can apply custom themes (bulk update styles) to your selection, which makes it extremely helpful for managing multi-brand projects in #figma.
Contrast by @alex_a_carr

A tool to ensure your system is digitally accessible and meets the #WCAG standards.

Run the plugin and select a layer. The plugin will instantly tell the contrast ratio between the background and foreground of your selection.

Revised font lookup tables.
NEW: when used as body text, table cells outlined in yellow should have Lc 15 added to the listed contrast figure (see the +15). Fonts outlined in blue/teal (ish) may use the value as listed, but may benefit from an additional Lc10 to Lc15. ++ APCA find look up table this one is sorted by contrast valueAPCA find look up table this one is sorted by font size withAPCA find look up table legend
--For developers, there are ready-to-go arrays of the look up tables, presorted by Lc value, and also with a table of pre-calculated interpolation values, and more.

They are in the data folder at the main repo:…
-- Also, the key levels have been described more completely to be useful instead of the lookup tables.

As an alternate conformance you can use the levels without the LUTs for a simpler workflow, or, use the LUT for more accuracy and more flexibility.

A lot of the times, when we discuss the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, there is a misconception that if you meet all of the criteria then your service will work for everyone. Here is a little thread to explain why #WCAG itself is not enough.
It's very difficult to gauge how accessible something is or isn't based on WCAG alone. There are 3 levels (A, AA, and AAA). However, AA is pretty much the minimum standard, and even @w3c who wrote WCAG do not advocate for trying to meet AAA across the board.
So, if #WCAG level AA is the minimum, and AAA is not recommended across the board, we can almost think of WCAG 2.1 AA as a binary standard. You meet it or you don't. Until WCAG 3.0, there is not really scale to measure how accessible or inaccessible something is.

Hello #a11y crowd!

I know that a lot of people have been following some comments I made regarding content/trigger warnings, so I figured I'd gather all my comments in a thread with some anecdotal best practices and food for thought for people who are interested. (1/20)
First off, I'm humbled by the number of #accessibility professionals who are following this conversation and taking my words so seriously. I meant my comment to be a one-off comment regarding better care and consideration in UX regarding mental health in/and digital #a11y. (2/20)
I'd also like to offer the reminder that while I have mental health and medical triggers related to #OCPD, #PTSD, and post-concussive syndrome, #disabled people are not a monolith and what others experience and what they need will be different. What I share is anecdotal. (3/20)

But wait, I say
Is there a way
To tell me my alt-text’s ok?

Yep! The tool you seek
Is there under
“Sufficient technique.”
Pick a technique
Fitting your case best
And check it with the
provided tests.

#AccessibleCoffee #WCAG
“at the bottom of the section, see,
Your failing case. Specifically:”

Failure of Success Criterion 1.1.1 due to omitting the alt attribute or text alternative on img elements, area elements, and input elements of type "image"…

#AccessibleCoffee #WCAG
Shall I consult this specification
For techniques for my situation?

Oh hey. What’s in section 1.1.1 Sufficient Techniques: Situation A?

“If a short description can serve the same purpose and present the same information as the non-text content”

I’m having a coffee and wondering how to invite everyone I possibly can to share this momentous occasion.

Let me see how far the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines will take me.

If I let myself get all caught up
In how much there is to ask
And do to include everyone
I’ll never start this task.

I likely won’t get everyone,
But I can include a lot
So in place of wondering why do this,
I ask myself, why not?

#AccessibleCoffee #WCAG
One thing to help my brain work sweet

Is to break this into bite-size tweets

🔴 Responsabilité numérique : l'exemple des #musées 🏛️

Je publie aujourd'hui une étude pour analyser l'état du web muséal français autour des enjeux d'#opendata, de #privacy, d'#a11y et d'#ecoconception.

❔ Partie 1 - Méthode - Quel périmètre d'analyse ?

Je me suis intéressé aux 100 #musées les plus fréquentés en France, en 2018. En repartant des données en #opendata du @MinistereCC.

Si on soustrait quelques doublons de sites, on obtient 89 sites web étudiés.

Accessibility & Inclusivity 📝

⬇️ Thread ⬇️

“There's no such thing as normal“

Inclusive design aims to produce the most effective user expertise for as many of us as attainable. Accessibility isn't solely a problem that applies to individuals with disabilities -

#a11y #WCAG Image
it's a problem that affects everyone. An inclusive world may be a higher world. As a result, we wish to be in the vicinity of that.

What are you saying?? It’s just the domain of UX designer and developer, why does accessibility matter for anyone other:

#accessibility #UX
- The inclusive design will increase access. A social media strategy that considers inclusive design will a similar. while not accessible, you miss out on connecting along with your full potential audience.

Why do we care about accessibility & accessible design?

Recently I was on Fiverr browsing through jobs & there was one pop-up that came asking for to enable the accessible mode for the site.

#a11y #WCAG #accessibility #ux
I was curious and enabled the accessible mode & I got answers for every question on accessibility’s needs.

Does anyone know of an #a11y dev tool and audit tool that can point to #WCAG issues, both proactively and after the fact?

@snipe @ceejbot @TaelurAlexis @ashleymcnamara @kristen_pol
@ceejbot @TaelurAlexis @ashleymcnamara @kristen_pol I currently use Site Improve Accessibility and WAVE. I will say I am liking the Accessibility Insights plugin.

We are also wanting to crawl the site and catch that which we are seeing in the browser. One of the tools I am liking in my investigation is

Aujourd’hui, les #WCAG ont 20 ans ! 🎉🎂
Pour fêter ça, voici un p’tit zrèd #accessibilité web où je vais donner une recommandation par jour, en espérant que ça serve à qlq personnes.
Il sera question ici d’accessibilité et pas nécessairement de conformité.
On commence par UX-UI.
👀 Visibilité du texte
Un ratio de contraste d’au moins 4,5 avec la couleur qui l’entoure est nécessaire.
Tolérance d’au moins 3 pour du “grand” texte (rendu équiv. à au moins 24 px ou 18,5 px pour du texte en gras) et les graphs / pictos non décoratifs.
Une échelle graduée de 1 à 21 avec le curseur sur 4,5. En dessous c'est pas bon, au dessus c'est bon.
