Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1—for People Who Haven’t Read the Update ◆ 24 ways
Alan Dalton gives a plain English guide to the updates.

>"The WCAG working group have added 17 success criteria to the 61 that they released way back in 2008—for context, that was 1½ years before Apple released their first iPad! These new criteria make it easier than ever for us web geeks to produce work that is more accessible to people using mobile devices and touchscreens, people with low vision, and people with cognitive and learning disabilities."

Accessibility for Teams
This guide provides:

- An overview of how each team member can contribute to a product's accessibility
- A framework for thinking about accessibility and inclusive design in your role
- An understanding of the human need behind accessibility practices
- We focus on the issues most likely to impact government sites. These guidelines do not provide a comprehensive list of all possible issues. Your team will need additional resources and work to conduct manual audits to conform to the standards of Section 508 (which aligns with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA), a law that ensures all web content is accessible to anybody with a disability.

A Responsive Accessible Table | Adrian Roselli
After writing (again) that it is ok to use tables, and after providing quick examples of responsive tables, I received questions about why I used some of the code I did. I am going to attempt to break it down to give you enough information to make your own responsive, accessible table because my example will likely not fit your case precisely (or closely?).

WebAIM: CSS in Action - Invisible Content Just for Screen Reader Users
There are occasional instances where content should be made available to screen reader users, but hidden from sighted users. In most cases, if content (particularly content that provides functionality or interactivity) is important enough to provide to screen reader users, it should probably be made available to all users.

Adactio: Journal—Unlabelled search fields
Adam Silver is writing a book on forms—you may be familiar with his previous book on maintainable CSS. In a recent article (that for some reason isn’t on his blog), he looks at markup patterns for search forms and advocates that we should always use a label. I agree. But for some reason, we keep getting handed designs that show unlabelled search forms. And no, a placeholder is not a label.
