Accessibility according to actual people with disabilities - Axess Lab
“If you have a disability, what’s the hardest thing about browsing the web?” The answers to Safia Abdalla’s tweet are truly eye-opening and shows us what web accessibility should really be about.

Removing that ugly :focus ring (and keeping it too)
You want to have a subtle focus style for mouse users, when they have clicked on a keyboard-entry element (e.g. <input type="text"> or <textarea>). And remove other focus rings, but then for the keyboard navigators show the normal focus ring.
Excellent choice, this is what I do, too.

Personal names around the world - and how this affects form design
How do people's names differ around the world, and what are the implications of those differences on the design of forms, databases, ontologies, etc. for the Web?

People who create web forms, databases, or ontologies are often unaware how different people’s names can be in other countries. They build their forms or databases in a way that assumes too much on the part of foreign users. This article will first introduce you to some of the different styles used for personal names, and then some of the possible implications for handling those on the Web.

This article doesn't provide all the answers – the best answer will vary according to the needs of the application, and in most cases, it may be difficult to find a 'perfect' solution. It attempts to mostly sensitize you to some of the key issues by way of an introduction. The examples and advice shown relate mostly to Web forms and databases. Many of the concepts are, however, also worth considering for ontology design, though we won't call out specific examples here.

Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names | Kalzumeus Software
I have never seen a computer system which handles names properly and doubt one exists, anywhere.

So, as a public service, I’m going to list assumptions your systems probably make about names.  All of these assumptions are wrong.  Try to make less of them next time you write a system which touches names.

In Plain Sight – Shopify UX
This is that post from Shopify about quibbles with WCAG’s color-contrast algorithm. For instance, they go over an example where black-on-strawberry text supposedly has enough contrast but white-on-strawberry text doesn’t have enough contrast (even though subjectively the white text seems easier to read).
