Please join us on Wednesday, November 7, at 11am Eastern for the second in the new webinar series devoted to the technical challenges in making the web accessible, technica11y! Our presenter will be Gerard Cohen, Lead Accessibility Strategist for Wells Fargo Digital Solutions for Business and the topic will be custom selects.
That’s right: custom selects. Just like carousels, creating a custom select widget is one of a few cardinal sins in accessibility. The general guidance is, “DONT DO IT! Just use a native select, since accessibility is already built in.” This is mostly good advice, if all you need is to provide an exclusive selection out of a list of options in a compact way, native select is definitely the way to go. But what if that is not enough?
