Re: closest alternatives to semantic UI

There are some excellent resources for building a lot of rich widgets on W3C's "Aria Practices" page: https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.1/

Most everything under the "Design Patterns and Widgets" section have an example or two with pretty in-depth explanations. That's far from a framework, of course, but it's better than nothing.

Hi Michael,

As far as I am aware, there are no front-end frameworks that are even remotely accessible. If there are, then no one is using them. Most don't even do radio button and checkbox replacements properly, let alone rich controls.

Subject: [WebAIM] closest alternatives to semantic UI

Hi all,

As a bit of an introduction, I am blind, and use screen readers. I also program in my spare time. To that end, I have been looking into replacing semantic UI (which I hear is not interested whatsoever to add accessibility to their framework) with something else in an open source project [1]. So I'm looking for recommendations for frontend frameworks that are fully accessible, but have similar or identical features to semantic UI. Of special note is that this particular application relies on rich controls such as searchable multiselect boxes, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
