Hey there! I'm an accessibility specialist and a front-end developer from Finland 👋  I love sharing what I've learned, so I write a blog and speak at meetups and conferences. I'm also part of several communities working for a more equal tech scene in Finland. When not coding, I'm in a a kayak exploring the world or in an ultimate frisbee practice or game.

Shared accessibility knowledge
I have a habit of testing sites with a keyboard, and many pages have problems with buttons. With that I mean that the buttons don't work without a mouse. I usually check the source code to understand why that particular button doesn't work. There are several reasons I've seen, and I wrote a blog post explaining them.

I wrote a blog post about `aria-label`, and how it's not always the answer. It doesn't work well with, for example, `div`s or `span`s, as the support with screen readers is not consistent.

Added new feature
Inspired from the talk "Auditorial: an innovative approach to inclusive story telling" by Robin Spinks and Sonali Rai in Inclusive Design 24 this year, I decided to add audio versions of my blog posts. I keep adding them shortly after publishing a new post, but you can already find couple of the newest posts with audio versions read by me. 

The following posts have audio:
- First Month as an Accessibility Specialist at Oura
- Thoughts From Reading Demystifying Disability by Emily Ladau

The audio can be listened from the blog post page. All the posts can be found from https://eevis.codes/blog
