I'm looking for your favorite recommendations for teaching developers
the nitty-gritty of writing accessible JavaScript. Not the whys, but the
hows: when to add tabindex and key down actions and aria. I'm fine with
text or video. Behind a pay wall is fine. In fact, ideally I am looking
for published books, published chapters, published videos, or conference
videos -- in this particular circumstance that's what is most needed.
But any great resources would be good.

Especially among published things, it is so easy to find the basics,
but much more difficult to find the actual details the developer needs
down in the weeds.

Thanks so much,

Deborah Kaplan

Hope some of these links may help.
Maybe Patrick and Léonie have links to videos for
their presentations that I cite below.

Best,
