ING open sources Lion: A library of performant, accessible & flexible Web Components

Lion aims to make your life a little bit easier, by taking the groundwork of feature complete, accessible, performant, and framework agnostic components out of your hands! Check out the repo at ing-bank/lion.

As some of you may already know, ING has a long and rich history of building Web Components, starting out with the Polymer library, all the way up to the recently released LitElement.

Need a refresher? Web Components are a set of browser standards that allow us to write browser native, reusable, encapsulated, and modular components.

Web Components standards have finally matured, and today, there are many ways to build and consume your Web Components, like: Angular ElementsStencilVueSvelte and many, many more. And with the release of the new Chromium Edge, this means that all major browsers support Web Components natively.

So today, I’m happy to share with you all that ING is open-sourcing its own core library of Web Components: Lion! 🎉

Operating System and Browser Accessibility Display Modes – The A11Y Project

Most computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and web browsers have specialized tools to help people read and take action on the content they display. Some of these tools are display modes, which are pre-defined display configurations you can tell your device to use.

Five such modes are Dark Mode, Increased Contrast Mode, Inverted Colors Mode, Reduced Motion Mode, and High Contrast Mode. Following is an explanation of each of these mode, who can benefit from it, how to enable it on your device or browser (if supported), and how to support it in code.

Digital accessibility for digital teams: a role by role guide | Perkins Access

No matter your role, you can help your organization prioritize and implement digital accessibility.

Digital accessibility makes good economic sense. People with disabilities, and their friends and families, spend $1.2 trillion a year. Clearly, they’re more likely to spend their money on digital platforms they can navigate successfully. Plus, businesses with inaccessible digital experiences are at risk of being drawn into costly lawsuits.

Creating accessible digital products isn’t any one person’s responsibility. In fact, digital accessibility requires the effort of every person on your digital team, from marketing to product, to design, development, and content.

Apple’s Voice Control in iOS13 is the real deal

A friend on Twitter asked my impressions on Voice Control.

That prompted me to finally install iOS13 and give it a go.

I am very enthused by the result.

Voice Control acts just like most Apple products do – they do what they say and they show thought and attention to detail.

It’s a game changer for me. With Voice Control I can now switch settings to auto answer my phone with EarPods or Speaker – according to where I am and what I’m doing – without assistance and without being stranded ‘in-communicado’ if it wasn’t done.

Now just to get Shortcuts to play nice.
