re: JavaScript and Accessibility: Accordions VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

However, it is my personal preference using classes for styling and not attributes.

One of the wins of using ARIA attributes to style interactive components like this is that the component will never work without the ARIA changes baked in. This may not matter in very small teams or teams where there is across-the-board knowledge about accessibility, but for all other cases, I would highly recommend using the ARIA attributes in the CSS, too.

This was a great post, btw!

 

True! I just never forget, but I definitely like the idea of forcing people to deal with it 😃
