Inclusive Components: Accessible Web Interfaces, Piece By Piece By Heydon Pickering

Inclusive Components: Accessible Web Interfaces, Piece By Piece By Heydon Pickering

Ben Nadel giving his thumbs-up for Inclusive Components: Accessible Web Interfaces, Piece By Piece by Heydon Pickering.

Historically, my mental model for "accessible" websites could be summed up as follows: "use semantic HTML and don't remove form control outlines." I always knew this mental model was lacking detail; but, I didn't realized just how sub-par it actually was until I read Inclusive Components: Accessible Web Interfaces, Piece by Piece by Heydon Pickering. This book was truly eye-opening (in an tragically shameful way). It really showed me just how little I understand about other people's experiences; and, about how to construct applications with accessibility and equity in mind. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs a wake-up call!

To be honest, I actually purchased and first started to read Inclusive Components back in May of 2020 (7 months ago). But, I immediately became overwhelmed by the content and had to put it down. If you haven't thought about accessibility before, this book is a lot to absorb. All of the visual cues that I'm used to working with have to be completely re-imagined for accessibility; and, done so in a way that doesn't negate the existing experience.
