31. Why the developers are not focusing on Accessibility?19 June 2021
I am very active in the accessibility awareness community. In the past, I have done a lot of talks, workshops, panel discussions, Q&A, audits, and blog writing to inform the 'web community' folks about accessibility importance.
However, it breaks my heart when folks used to come to me and reply that - "No one asks us about accessibility in the interview".
The reason is: The bitter truth is developers learn things just to get the job. If something is not getting asked at the job interview it is not important for them.
Also, I saw a lot of interviews didn't even know what to ask in the interview.
So, I decided to teach and create awareness of accessibility by writing an "Interview questions series".** You can look at it as a FAQs or quick guide to learn about accessibility.
