@ohhelloana Nice to see you in the 24% of accessible websites! 🎉

@accessiblestef Thanks! Unfortunately I don't have such data. I went through all the websites myself, and almost all were in English.

@lyndon I think the reason is that personal websites do not have that many images on their front page. When looking into the top 1M websites analysis, it's 60.6% of pages having missing alt texts :(

🌈 How accessible are personal blogs and portfolio websites? I've analyzed over 1600 personal sites and it turns out they're doing better than big popular websites. But there's still a lot of room for improvement.

@Seirdy I think I missed the Windows support the first time I looked into libavif (or I couldn't make it work for some reason). I'll have another look, thanks!

I'm two posts away from reaching a new all-year high AND 50 articles overall. Great blogging year so far. 🔥✍️

🎉 New Evaluatory version available. This tool now uses Chromium by default, which makes the execution much faster and less error-prone. The browser is also configurable (Chromium, Firefox, Webkit).

I've updated my blog post on including comments on static websites. It's great to see so many projects being published: from traditional self-hosted or 3rd-party tools, to some newer decentralized approaches using the Matrix or IPFS protocols.

Imagine being a visually impaired person trying to apply to a university in Germany using uni-assist.de . You won't be able to even select the uni, as the select component is totally inaccessible. An actual blind student reported this issue, as she can't proceed. 😠

@jan Which RSS reader did you use? I'm getting the same issue in Inoreader. I've inspected the embedded image and Inoreader seems to transform the picture element and strip everything apart from the img tag. As img is the "not supported" fallback, this explains the wrong image.

@celia Does the company operate in the EU? Then they are required per GDPR art. 16 to change an email address on request (unfortunately it would require a EU citizen to file a complain)

The community confirms what might seem obvious. Although the assistive technology keeps improving, it's mostly people creating the end products (developers, designers, ...) who have the highest impact on (web) accessibility.

So I just learned about this "new" CSS ":target" pseudo-class. Except that it exists since Firefox 1, Chrome 1 and IE 9 😄

@garritfra @celia I agree - JavaScript moves fast, but you don't _need_ to follow the latest and brightest. I've had a small JS express app running in production for over 6 years now, without much maintenance.
