For some, accessibility conjures nightmares of garish focus rings and high-contrast fonts. For others, it’s snooze-inducing checklists ad nauseam.
With the onerous checklists and guidelines and complicated wording, accessibility can seem like a chore that takes a beautiful design and makes it…less beautiful.
