    The whole site has terrible accessibility:

    • Lack of focus style (Good luck navigating with a keyboard)
    • Meaningless alt text for images (eg. “karsten-wurth-inf1783-104731.jpg”)
    • The headings are a mess (eg. The copyright text is an h2)

    And more violations that aXe found (19 in total).

    Unfortunately, that‘s the state of modern web design. Glitz over Usability.

      Can't believe you both thought this was the time and place to mansplain about that.

        as a person who can use everything without the need for assistance, and who isn't as seasoned in the industry as others, I often forget about keeping my designs accessible.

        I thought their callouts to that were great – it reminded me to keep that in mind.

        It wasn't a man trying to gut punch a woman thing in any way they could; it's a designer helping the industry get better.

        Granted, I'm a white dude; maybe any criticism at all is harmful for the advancement of better diversity in the industry. To that, I just don't know. But I'm a superfan of retreats like these.
