Useful accessibility resources

Last updated at:

Recently I gave a talk about topics I deeply care about. The talk title is Decrease your conversion – common ways to lock people out and it describes the fact that companies spend a lot of time on optimizing tiny things ignoring the fact that there are more factors to a successful product than button colors, perfect wording and features. What I'm talking about are web performance, inclusive design and accessibility.

In the research phase for this talk I collected many many links covering a wide range of accessibility topics and not every link made it into the slidedeck. Nevertheless I believe that this resource collection is worth sharing. So here we go. 🎉

The list is grouped by topic (which is not always so easy) and in no particular order.

Side note: I'll try to extend this list and keep it up to date in the future. Also I'm not guaranteeing any correctness of the following material.
