Building Accessibility Hooks for React Native & Web

About

Accessibility shouldn't be a choice that developers should make. It should go without asking. Syncing states, adding the support of screen readers and keyboard interactions can be cumbersome. My team and I have built a set of React hooks that make it easy to build accessible React Native and Web components that complies with the WAI-ARIA standards. It's an adoption of React Aria (by Adobe) in React Native for mobile platforms. The web support is also enabled using React Native Web to make universal components that are accessible by default on all the platforms. We call it React Native Aria. Let's talk about it!
