Finding a balance. #

A lot of sites that preach accessibility miss a point that everyone is thinking “If I’m focused on accessibility, I won’t be able to work as fast or make as many cool things.”. Yep. That’s true.

Hell, above where I wrote “🗹🗹🗹 these boxes are high contrast.

With the bold text being in a, uh, bold voice? It depends on the user’s screen reader.

And, yeah, oof. That’s not a good experience. It’s worth trying to balance your use of text, images, and (do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do) Unicode abusing spice.
