On Monday, July 22nd, at 4pm EDT we'll be having the July #a11ychat. This month we're revisiting April's topic: "Violation or Best Practice?" We will discuss some more of the many accessibility guidelines whose interpretation can sometimes be ambiguous - accessibility issues that are often perceived as actual violations that may in fact only be best practice (and vice versa). Join the Deque Team for discussion. We'd love your input!
