I would recommend https://medium.com/salesforce-ux/4-major-patterns-for-accessible-drag-and-drop-1d43f64ebf09 as a very useful introduction to the different types of drag and drop. It's important to be aware of these differences because for example dragging items to sort a list is a completely different task from dragging an item from one container to another and they require a completely different approaches and accessibility solutions.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [WebAIM] Drag and drop resources

Hello all,

I just searched through the archives for guidelines on accessible drag and drop implementation that I can share with our developers, and found some useful links:
Important Considerations Regarding Accessible Drag and Drop for Web Technologies https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/important-considerations-regarding-accessible-drag-drop-garaventa/

ARIA Drag and Drop - Apex 4X Technical Style Guide http://whatsock.com/Templates/Drag/index.htm

Are there other resources that anyone can recommend?

Also, would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me to live examples of accessible drag and drop implementations that I can use for demos.

Many thanks.
