I’m Joe Baker, an accessibility expert focused on ensuring that all customers are considered when building products and services. I’ve been on several digital accessibility teams, including at Amazon and Microsoft. I found early on that resources for accessibility focused on empathy, or were too technical, for the average person inside a company and never focused on how to build an actual sustainable accessibility program.
I started out as a front-end developer and designer early on in my career, but shifted over to a Product and Program development after co-founding Pixelstrike Creative. During one of my earlier projects as a developer I received a bug report that had a number of accessibility issues. I had no experience before that time developing accessibly and this opened up my eyes to a whole new world. The goal of my articles and component guides is to take my experience and to share my learnings to help everyone as a resource to add or enhance to their accessibility.
This site, and the articles, are a work in progress that I will fill out over time. If you have suggestions of topics to cover, or find an issue with the site please Contact me!
