How to prevent inaccessible code from making it to your site using Tenon and Husky

Today I added a new branch to the grunt-tenon-demo repository on GitHub to show how to use Tenon as a Git Hook, using Husky. Personally, I find Git’s own documentation on Git hooks to be woefully inadequate. Fortunately there are some good tutorials out there for creating Git hooks. In some cases, Git hooks don’t […]

Rapid Discovery and Remediation

This is the continuation of a previous post: Extreme Accessibility: Rapid Discovery And Remediation, Part 1. In this post, I’ll explain a better process.

Sign up for the first Tenon accessibility bootcamp, October 10 & 11 2017

Throughout my 15-year long career in accessibility, I’ve trained several hundred developers, QA, design, and product staff.

A “Global Top 10” isn’t your Top Ten

Recently there’s been a bit of a kerfuffle over a LinkedIn article purporting to have done extensive analysis on accessibility across the web in an attempt to create a “Top 10 List” of priorities. There were many strong and negative reactions to the article and I took them to task on my own site for […]

Ecosystem vs. Library

“How does Tenon differ from X library?” is a question we often get from potential customers. “X Library” in this case is usually one of aXe, the Google Accessibility Developer tools library, HTML Code Sniffer, and the like. This is a sensible question and we’re happy that potential customers are out there doing their research […]
