DAY 75

Project 15, part 2

Today we’re going to go back through three of our earlier projects, highlighting accessibility problems and fixing them. This might seem like it might be a bit dull, but I want you to think again about what our goal is here: do we want to build software that benefits everyone?

I hope the answer is yes. There’s a New York lawyer called Gregory Mansfield who fights for disability rights, and he once wrote this: “Accessibility is not charity. Accessibility is not generosity. Accessibility is not an amenity. Accessibility is not a gratuity. You don’t bestow access – you ensure it.”

As you work through today’s three topics, I hope you’re pleasantly surprised by a) how easy this stuff really is, and b) how little it affects the rest of your code. And once you realize that, you’ll start to wonder why so many other app developers do such a poor job of making their apps accessible to everyone.

Today you have three topics to work through, in which you’ll fix three projects we made earlier in this course.
