HTML5 Accessibility Chops: hidden and aria-hidden support on the UP!

At the start of 2012 I published results on the state of HTML5 hidden attribute support and aria-hidden attribute support. Based on the results, advice was provided on the best methods to hide content from some or all users.

Sometimes people ask me where to go for help making their web sites accessible and TPG is always the first thing on my mind because people like Steve Faulkner are right there at the forefront of pushing web accessibility forward. They totally 'get' that to be truly effective in this area you need to understand the whole accessibility ecosystem from assistive technology, to accessible applications, to web standards and so on… this kind of expertise is rare.
