This is not an accessibility 101 site. If you need some Accessibility 101 guidance, and the Basic Elements of Accessibility page didn’t give you what you need, here are some resources to get you started.

- Getting Started with Web Accessibility by Monika Piotrowicz at The Pastry Box.
- Dos and don’ts on designing for accessibility by Karwai Pun on Gov.UK.
- Designing for Inclusivity: How and Why to Get Started by Allison Shaw at the Invision Design Blog.
- Exclusive Design by Vasilis van Gemert is a thesis describing what design would be like if we designed not inclusively, but exclusively for people with disabilities. It’s a long read, but covers a lot of ground about our current assumptions.

- Paint the Picture, Not the Frame: How Browsers Provide Everything Users Need by Eric Bailey on A List Apart outlines some major browser functionality that is sometimes recreated by developers, such as a scroll-to-top pattern, scrollbar designs, scrolling, highlighting, text resizing, high-contrast themes, moving the focus, the clipboard, and browser history, that really probably shouldn’t be messed with unless you’re going to be incredibly thorough and consider a wide array of inclusive use cases.
