      machine translation: The frustratingly confusing situation of WAI authoring practices
    • tweets, excerpts of additional thread: I wrote this sone weeks ago. What a coincidence that today, @w3c_wai possibly rendered the article obsolete with: https://w3.org/WAI/ARIA/apg/ ...
      When I took a glance I only saw a proper warning, "Read Me First", providing much more context. But rendering an article obsolete that tries to point out at least communication issues with a ressource is actually the best thing that could happen.

  • Getting started with ARIA: ...
    Then: Argh! — A long spec doc… — you know how that goes.
    But no more, apparently.
    There’s a brand new ARIA Authoring Practices Guide, fledgling still but with patterns, practices, and other guides. ...
    This is what I need. A clear introduction. Progress.


  • machine translation: Have you seen that @w3c_wai has created a new, refreshed version of the ARIA Authoring Practices Guide?
    We like the implementation examples 😊 present in it

  • No ARIA is better than Bad ARIA.
    Before using any ARIA, it is essential to understand why.

  • Recently redesigned ARIA Authoring Practices Guide from @w3c_wai makes it easier for web developers to follow best practices and make accessible web apps.

  • Sometimes documentation can be overwhelming. I’m glad about this redesign making guidelines more intuitive and understandable to implement. #a11y #web #accessibility
  • 😍
  • The @w3c_wai has published a guide with ARIA roles and keyboard interactions for each web component:

  • @w3c_wai @w3c please redirect old WAI-ARIA Authoring practices links to the new APG website, Every single link is broken.
    Also please add anchor links to the headers, I can't jump to "Managing Focus Within Components Using a Roving tabindex" header and link it directly.

  • machine translation: When I went to see the sample code of aria after a long time, the site was clean and dim
  • Dear @w3c_wai , I'm liking the new layout of your ARIA patterns at: https://w3.org/WAI/ARIA/apg/patterns/ but would it not have been possible to do a 301 redirect from all the old pages to the new pages? I've got a page of links that are all giving me a 404 now. ☹️
  • So many things that bother me about this redesign. It’s great but under the hood, not so much.

  • Bookmark: the old WAI-ARIA spec is now the ARIA Authoring Practices Guide (APG) #a11y #w3c
    Amy Lee
  • This is a great idea. I think one of the reasons #a11y is often skipped is because the docs are so long and dull.

  • machine translation: Friends, the cool face that hit the ARIA APG 👀

  • Y'all - I am so stoked for this new design. Great work, @bocoup and @w3c_wai ! #a11y

  • Finally, a digestible version 👌🏼
    JK Blackwell, 20 May 2022
  • TIL: Getting started with ARIA, thanks to the @w3c_wai 's super new guide.
    Carlton Gibson, 20 May 2022
  • machine translation: WAI-ARIA Authoring Practice has been redesigned. It's certainly easier to see.
    すこや, 20 May 2022
  • machine translation: WAI-ARIA-Authoring Practice 1.2 has been moved, and a page APG with a redesigned UI is born.
    Until now, it was like The Document,
    It feels like a design system (design guideline). NOMURA, 20 May 2022
  • Fresh new look for the WAI website. Same old rules apply though. Be sure to check out the "Read Me".

  • machine translation: Great news, the essential resource of @w3c_wai to correctly code accessible JS components has had a facelift, and it's very successful! To share 👍

  • Yay! @w3c_wai announced their redesigned ARIA Authoring Practices Guide (APG), significantly improved UX for @GAAD
    - well done! https://w3.org/WAI/ARIA/apg (ALT=disability icons/W3C Web Accessibility Initiative/Accessibility: Essential for some, useful for all)

  • ARIA Practices moved to a brand new website! Includes lots of examples and documentation of accessibility patterns, and learning resources. 😍 Very happy to see this. Much easier to navigate, and clearer that it isn’t a spec. Check it out!

about APG itself, beyond the redesign

  • twitter.com/w3c_wai/status/1527321803634274310
    I am thrilled this:
    - no longer looks like a standards doc,
    - is much easier to navigate.
    I am less thrilled this:
    - left a pile of 404s with the move,
    - implies it is a ready-to-use pattern library.
    APG is still untested, ARIA-first, and biased.
    Adrian Roselli, 20 May 2022
  • Pretty nice to see the WAI-ARIA site redesigned with a fresh, cleaner look! https://w3.org/WAI/ARIA/apg/
    Disclaimer: These patterns are NOT "the truth". The whole site is a great source of Accessibility knowledge. But use your own judgement before applying them dogmatically
