69.7% of FE devs never use a screen reader and 15.9% every now and then, which often probably only means that they’ve tried using one some time.

You don’t have to be a pro and use them every day, but at least know the basics. Help yourself with cheatsheets, like I do. 1/8

It'd be better for my personal well-being, if I'd stop caring about web accessibility and just use divs or whatever the fuck I believe is appropriate, like everyone else does, but before I do that, let me share a few bits of advice that are related to what triggered this tweet.
1. Hire JS devs to write fast, resilient and scalable JS. Hire frontend developers to write HTML and CSS, and to tell the JS devs what the JS should and should not do with the HTML.
2. Ask frontend developers in job interviews what they think about HTML. If they say it's easy, but they can't name a single screen reader -> red flag.

I just finished making accessibility audits of 9 of my students' projects. My key takeaway is that wave tool, lighthouse, etc. are great for identifying low hanging fruits (and beyond) but 0 errors or a score of 100 doesn't mean that your site is accessible. If you're…
If you're afraid of using a screen reader but you still want to go one step further with your accessibility testing, just press the TAB key. Using the keyboard will tell you so much about your website...
1. Do you clearly see which item is currently focused? No? Use :focus{}, :focus-within{}, or :focus-visible{} to style elements in their focus state. (focus visible polyfill: github.com/WICG/focus-vis…)
