If you're an optimist, the draw might give the Galaxy the one point they need to make the playoffs. But both sets of people would agree, the next two games are challenging. And getting results against Sporting KC and the Seattle Sounders would mean the Galaxy earn the post-season spot! On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's pathetic first-half performance against a bottom-dwelling team in the Western Conference, and why Greg Vanney may have gotten it wrong with the players he chose for the starting lineup. And just how important is Julian Araujo to the Galaxy? Newsflash -- very important! Was that a peek at what the Galaxy might be facing once Araujo moves on from Major League Soccer? But Josh and Kevin are keeping their eyes on the Wednesday night matchup with Sporting KC. Kevin thinks the Galaxy are catching KC at the perfect time. And their schedule and the history of games played Children's Mercy Park might lean into that... almost. Josh thinks that getting a point from both KC and Seattle is key to getting into the playoffs. But with the inconsistency of the entire conference, maybe just a win against Minnesota will be enough? Along the way, the guys are talking about an "elite" level performance from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and why a spurt of goals could make a big ripple for the Galaxy and for the Golden Boot. Josh even has a chart for you to look at or something. Finally, the guys preview the Wednesday night matchup, why the Galaxy will be missing another defender, and why SKC might be down a goalkeeper and their leading scorer. There's a lot to discuss, and we're delighted you could join us!

A lot, actually. And we want to share it with you. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira talk about all the pertinent points the Galaxy accomplished against the Dynamo and why it makes Wednesday's game one of the most important of the year. In actuality, it all comes down to allowing Greg Vanney to start thinking about the FC Dallas game before the Houston game was even over. And that's something the Galaxy have failed to accomplish this entire season. And with six points out of nine so far in the week, the Dallas game takes on an importance that might not have been there if the Galaxy don't win midweek. The guys will talk about the significant contributions from the alternate lineup guys like Sacha Kljestan, Efrain Alvarez, and Kevin Cabral. And they'll also focus on Jonathan Bond's clean sheet and Julian Araujo's continued aggressiveness. Even Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos get some kind words lobbed in their direction. But the defensive pairing of Nick DePuy and Derrick Williams also deserves some focus. Josh and Eric will also discuss the latest salary numbers and who has spent the most money at each team segment throughout the league. Plus, they'll talk about the dollar cost per point and why it's okay to be spending a lot if you're getting a lot. Finally, the guys will look ahead to a match with FC Dallas that could have the visitors Pepi-less. What's the key to unlocking the Dallas defense? And why should the Galaxy's game plan be to score first... again? We've got a great show for you today, and we're glad we can get you ready for a Saturday night matchup! We'll see you at the game!

But is all right with the Galaxy now that they've figured out what three points feel like again? And why could this be a tricky week for the club and Greg Vanney! On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter (is Kevin in New York City? Or is he somewhere else using a green screen? We'll never really know the answer!) discuss the Galaxy's win over Portland and why it's not all positives for the club. Plus, the guys want to discuss Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez's performance since returning from injury. Is he quietly having one of the best performances in MLS? And is that good enough for what the Galaxy need him to be doing on the field? And with the defensive issues the Galaxy have had over this season, did you think that this was their best defensive performance? What was different from the entire team on the defensive side of things? Finally, Josh and Kevin will spend a lot of time looking at the Western Conference standings and why the next two games could make or break the Galaxy's playoff chances. With just three spots for five teams, who is most likely to make a late push for a spot? And why is that team the Vancouver Whitecaps? And if you're the Houston Dynamo, are you playing for pride on Wednesday night? Or do you fold up the tent and go home? After all, the Dynamo had their biggest win of the season on Saturday and still got eliminated from the playoffs! We've got a packed show that's getting you ready for a big game on Wednesday night. How many points do the Galaxy get from a Dynamo side that doesn't like to lose games at home?

But the Saturday night match is a big test for a team that hasn't won a big game this year. Could it be a make-or-break game for a Galaxy side looking for any momentum it can turn into points with just six games remaining?

And all of that will happen while the Dodgers battle the Giants in an NLDS deciding game -- the guys even stall at the end to make sure we can wrap it up. They didn't want to leave any loose threads. The guys will start by talking about the likelihood that Dennis te Kloese will be leaving at the end of the season and why that puts a lot of focus on the remaining front office staff.

The guys will wrap the international call-ups and tell you why some red flags surround Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos country appearances. Plus, Josh and Eric will tell you who will be available for selection on Saturday -- that includes injury updates as well. Then there's some Hall of Fame talk around Robbie Keane and a brief look at Julian Araujo and Efrain Alvarez's inclusion in the "22 Under 22" list that MLS hypes every season. Do Josh and Eric agree with the rankings? Where would they put the Galaxy's two young standouts? Finally, there's an in-depth look at the game this weekend with quotes from Greg Vanney about how the Galaxy can succeed against a red-hot Portland side that is coming into LA with all their confidence. It's a Saturday night game that doesn't get much bigger. Can the Galaxy find a way to break their winless streak? As always, thanks for listening to us!

There were so many stops and starts it's hard to carry any momentum through international breaks that seem to come in rapid succession and then get back into a sprint toward the next break. But what has that really done to the LA Galaxy this year? What has been lost in this constant sprint-and-stop pace that sees just six games remaining in the regular season? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Christian Miles (Kevin Baxter is away with the USMNT) discuss why the Galaxy haven't produced a consistent defensive lineup and why the midfield seems to have more holes in it than swiss cheese. The guys talk about what Jonathan dos Santos and Sebastian Lletget have in common and why Rayan Raveloson has shrunk away from the world-beater that showed up to the Galaxy and put the rest of the league on notice. Is there still time to fix both the midfield and the defense for the Galaxy? Or is it time to throw something against the wall and see what sticks? Josh and Christian will also discuss the Galaxy's upcoming schedule, why the race for the last playoff spot might just come down to a few teams, and what Galaxy internationals have been doing while away with their national teams. Plus, there's a power outage and some toilet talk! It's a well-rounded show that touches on just about everything! Thanks for joining us!

Were you expecting more from the LA Galaxy in their 1-1 draw? Were you waiting for things to explode in the second half? And are you still waiting? The Galaxy didn't exactly set the world on fire in the second half of the game against LAFC on Sunday night. And despite everything to play for in the final 45 mins of the match, they came up well short of clinical and seemed to be falling apart. On today's show hosts, Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's lack of a killer instinct and why the 4-4-2 with Dejan Joveljić and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez might not be the answer everyone was hoping it would be. Josh and Kevin start the show by discussing the overly long Landon Donovan statue unveiling, and then Josh will tell you what he thinks of the statue itself. Are you satisfied these statues are capturing the likeness of the Galaxy legends? Is it subjective? While discussing the draw itself, the guys will also dive into some fan behavior issues and why we're quickly falling down a rabbit hole of no visiting fans at these rivalry games. Is there a solution for the fighting, the damage to stadiums, and the pyrotechnics? Finally, Josh and Kevin will tell you why the Galaxy may be below the playoff line before they return from a 14-day international break and why you'll still have some MLS to watch over the weekend! We've got a great show that will help you bridge the gap in games that are rapidly approaching. Which Galaxy players will you watch on the international break? And where is Julian Araujo going to land? Thanks for joining us!

That's where the LA Galaxy's winless streak now stands, and they've got some tough prospects coming up midweek and this weekend. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's latest debacle and why Greg Vanney might be correct, but he still can't divorce himself from the results of the loss at Austin FC. The Guys will start with some numbers talk as they look at the Galaxy's play against Austin. Why did Vanney and Jonathan dos Santos both talk about execution after the game? And did the 2-0 loss come down to missed chances? What about the defense? Will they need to be perfect down the stretch for LA? And are the Galaxy even a playoff team anymore? Josh and Kevin will also discuss the chances that Dennis te Kloese gets all the blame if the season goes sideways and why one win really could mean the difference for a Galaxy team that is mentally fragile at this point. Expert analysis boiled down to "score first" and "be a better team." It may sound pedestrian, but the guys will make it sound way more exciting than that. But the base idea is still the same. So for the Galaxy, it definitely comes down to either executing when it counts or being executed before the season is over. How do the Galaxy make you feel right now? Can you take a positive mindset into Wednesday's match against Real Salt Lake? Let's go. Let's get this show going so that we can all find out what happens after the ball is kicked on Wednesday night!

Finally, there's some look at the upcoming schedule, a look at the balance of the last eight games of the season, and eventually, that will lead to a robust discussion about which way the Galaxy play the best.

And also, Mandy Moore. MANDY: Hi, everyone! I'm Mandy Moore and I'm here today with our guest, Todd Libby. Todd Libby is a professional web developer, designer, and accessibility advocate for 22 years under many different technologies starting with HTML/CSS, Perl, and PHP. Todd has been an avid learner of web technologies for over 40 years starting with many flavors of BASIC all the way to React/Vue. Currently an Accessibility Analyst at Knowbility, Todd is also a member of the W3C. When not coding, you'll usually find Todd tweeting about lobster rolls and accessibility. So before I ask you what your superpower is, I'm going to make a bet and my bet is that I'm 80% positive that your superpower has something to do with lobster rolls. Am I right? [laughter] Am I right? TODD: Well, 80% of the time, you'd be right. I just recently moved to Phoenix, Arizona. So I was actually going to say advocacy for accessibility, but yes, lobster rolls and the consumption of lobster rolls are a big part. MAE: I love it. That's fantastic. MANDY: Okay. Well, tell me about the advocacy. [chuckles] TODD: So it started with seeing family members who are disabled, friends who are disabled, or have family members themselves who are disabled, and the struggles they have with trying to access websites, or web apps on the web and the frustration, the look of like they're about ready to give up. That's when I knew that I would try to not only make my stuff that I made accessible, but to advocate for people in accessibility. MAE: Thank you so much for your work. It is critical. I have personally worked with a number of different populations and started at a camp for children with critical illnesses and currently work at an organization that offers financial services for people with disabilities – well, complex financial needs, which the three target populations that we work with are people with disabilities, people with dementia, and people in recovery. So really excited to talk with you today. Thanks. TODD: You're welcome. JOHN: When you started that journey, did you already have familiarity with accessibility, or was it all just like, “Oh, I get to learn all this stuff so I can start making it better”? TODD: So I fell into it because if you're like me and you started with making table-based layouts way back in the day, because what we had—Mosaic browser, Netscape Navigator, and Internet Explorer—we were making table-based layouts, which were completely inaccessible, but I didn't know that. As the web progressed, I progressed and then I bought a little orange book by Jeffrey Zeldman, Designing with Web Standards, and that pretty much started me on my journey—semantic HTML, progressive enhancement in web standards, and accessibility as well. I tend to stumble into a lot of stuff [laughs] so, and that's a habit of mine. [laughs] MAE: It sounds like it's a good habit and you're using it to help all the other people. So I hate to encourage you to keep stumbling, but by all means. [laughter] Love it. If you were to advise someone wanting to know more about accessibility, would you suggest they start with that same book too, or what would you suggest to someone stumbling around in the dark and not hitting anything yet? TODD: The book is a little outdated. I think the last edition of his book was, I want to say 2018, maybe even further back than that. I would suggest people go on websites like The A11Y project, the a11yproject.com. They have a comprehensive list of resources, links to learning there. Twitter is a good place to learn, to follow people in the accessibility space. The other thing that, if people really want to dive in, is to join The W3C. That's a great place and there's a lot of different groups. You have the CSS Working Group, you have the accessibility side of things, which I'm a part of, the Silver Community Group, which is we're working on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 3.0, which is still a little ways down the road, but a lot of great people and a lot of different companies. Some of those companies we've heard of—Google, Apple, companies like that all the way down to individuals. Individuals can join as individuals if your company isn't a member of the W3C. So those are the three things that I mainly point to people. If you don't really want to dive into the W3C side of things, there's a lot of resources on the a11yproject.com website that you can look up. MANDY: So what does being a member entail? What do you have to do? Do you have to pay dues? Do you have to do certain projects, maybe start as an individual level, because I'm sure we have mostly individuals listening to the show. Me as a newbie coder, what would I do to get started as a member of this initiative? TODD: Well, I started out as an individual myself, so I joined and I can get you the link to The W3C Community Page. Go to sign up as an individual and someone will approve the form process that you go through—it's nothing too big, it's nothing complicated—and then that will start you on your way. You can join a sub group, you can join a group, a working group, and it doesn't cost an individual. Companies do pay dues to the W3C and if your company is in the W3C, you get ahold of your company's liaison and there's a process they go through to add you to a certain group. Because with me, it was adding me to The Silver Community Group. But as an individual, you can join in, you can hop right into a meeting from there, and then that's basically it. That's how you start. JOHN: What are the challenges you see in getting not only the goals of a W3C, but I'm assuming specifically around accessibility? TODD: Some of the things that I've seen is buy-in from stakeholders is probably the number one hurdle, or barrier. Companies, stakeholders, and board members, they don't think of, or in some cases, they don't care about accessibility until a company is getting sued and that's a shame. That's one of the things that I wrote about; I have an article on Smashing Magazine. Making A Strong Case for Accessibility, it's called and that is one of few things that I've come across. Getting buy-in from stakeholders and getting buy-in from colleagues as well because you have people that they don't think about accessibility, they think about a number of different things. Mostly what I've come across is they don't think about accessibility because there's no budget, or they don't have the time, or the company doesn't have the time. It's not approved by the company. The other thing that is right up there is it's a process—accessibility—making things accessible and most people think that it's a big this huge mountain to climb. If you incorporate accessibility from the beginning of your project, it's so much easier. You don't have to go back and you don't have to climb that mountain because you've waited until the very end. “Oh, we have time now so we'll do the accessibility stuff,” that makes it more hard. MAE: John, your question actually was similar to something I was thinking about with how you developed this superpower and I was going to ask and still will now. [chuckles] How did you afford all the time in the different places where you were overtime to be able to get this focus? And so, how did you make the case along the way and what things did you learn in that persuasion class of life [chuckles] that was able to allow you to have that be where you could focus and spend more time on and have the places where you work prioritize successful? TODD: It was a lot of, I call it diplomatic advocacy. So for instance, the best example I have is I had been hired to make a website, a public facing website, and a SAAS application accessible. The stakeholder I was directly reporting to, we were sitting down in a meeting one day and I said, “Well, I want to make sure that accessibility is the number one priority on these projects,” and he shot back with, “Well, we don't have the disabled users,” and that nearly knocked me back to my chair. [laughs] So that was a surprise. MAE: There's some groaning inside and I had to [chuckles] do it out loud for a moment. Ooh. TODD: Yeah, I did my internal groaning at the meeting so that just was – [chuckles] Yeah, and I remember that day very vividly and I probably will for the rest of my life that I looked at him and I had to stop and think, and I said, “Well, you never know, there's always a chance that you're able, now you could be disabled at any time.” I also pointed out that his eyeglasses that he wore are an assistive technology. So there was some light shed on that and that propelled me even further into advocacy and the accessibility side of things. That meeting really opened my eyes to not everyone is going to get it, not everyone is going to be on board, not everyone is going to think about disabled users; they really aren't. So from there I used that example. I also use what I call the Domino's Pizza card lately because “Oh, you don't want to get sued.' That's my last resort as far as advocacy goes. Other than that, it's showing a videotape of people using their product that are disabled and they can't use it. That's a huge difference maker, when a stakeholder sees that somebody can't use their product. There's numbers out there now that disabled users in this country alone, the United States, make up 25% of the population, I believe. They have a disposable income of $8 trillion. The visually disabled population alone is, I believe it was $1.6 billion, I think. I would have to check that number again, but it's a big number. So the money side of things really gets through to a stakeholder faster than “Well, your eyeglasses are a assistive technology.” So once they hear the financial side of things, their ears perk up real quick and then they maybe get on board. I've never had other than one stakeholder just saying, “No, we're just going to skip that,” and then that company ended up getting sued. So that says a lot, to me anyways. But that's how I really get into it. And then there was a time where I was working for another company. I was doing consulting for them and I was doing frontend mostly. So it was accessibility, but also at the same time, it was more the code side of things. That was in 2018. 2019, I went to a conference in Burlington, Vermont. I saw a friend of mine speaking and he was very passionate about it and that talk, and there was a couple others there as well, it lit that fire under me again, and I jumped right back in and ever since then, it's just then accessibility. MAE: You reminded me one of the arguments, or what did you say? Diplomatic advocacy statements that I have used is that we are all temporarily abled. [chuckles] Like, that's just how it is and seeing things that way we can really shift how you orient to the idea of as other and reduce the othering. But I was also wondering how long it would be before Pizza Hut came up in our combo. [laughter] MANDY: Yeah, I haven't heard of that. Can you tell us what that is? TODD: [chuckles] So it was Domino's and they had a blind user that tried to use their app. He couldn't use their app; their app wasn't accessible. He tried to use the website; the website wasn't accessible. I have a link that I can send over to the whole story because I'm probably getting bits and pieces wrong. But from what I can recall, basically, this user sued Domino's and instead of Domino's spending, I believe it was $36,000 to fix their website and their app, they decided to drag it out for a number of years through court and of course, spent more money than just $36,000. In the end, they lost. I think they tried to appeal to the Supreme Court because they've gone up as high as federal court, but regardless, they lost. They had to – and I don't know if they still have an inaccessible site, or not, or the app for that matter because I don't go to Domino's. But that's basically the story that they had; a user who tried to access the app and the website, couldn't use it, and they got taken to court. Now Domino's claimed, in the court case, that he could have used the telephone, but he had tried to use the telephone twice and was on hold for 45 minutes. So [laughs] that says a lot. JOHN: Looks like it actually did go to the Supreme Court. TODD: Yeah. Correct me if I'm wrong, I think they did not want to hear it. They just said, “No, we're not going to hear the case.” Yeah, and just think about all these apps we use and all the people that can't access those apps, or the websites. I went to some company websites because I was doing some research, big companies, and a lot of them are inaccessible. A little number that I can throw out there: every year, there's been a little over 2,500 lawsuits in the US. This year, if the rate keeps on going that it has, we're on course for over 4,000 lawsuits in the US alone for inaccessible websites. You've had companies like Target, Bank of America, Winn-Dixie, those kinds of companies have been sued by people because of inaccessible sites. MAE: Okay, but may I say this one thing, which is, I just want to extend my apologies to Pizza Hut. [laughter] MANDY: What kinds of things do you see as not being accessible that should be or easily could be that companies just simply aren't doing? TODD: The big one, still and if you go to webaim.org/projects/million, it's The WebAIM Million report. It's an annual accessibility analysis of the top 1 million home pages on the internet. The number one thing again, this year is color contracts. There are guidelines in place. WCAG, which is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, that text should be a 4.5:1 ratio that reaches the minimum contrast for texts. It's a lot of texts out there that doesn't even reach that. So it's color contrast. You'll find a lot of, if you look at—I'm looking at the chart right now—missing alt texts on images. If you have an image that is informative, or you have an image that is conveying something to a user, it has to have alternative text describing what's in the picture. You don't have to go into a long story about what's in the picture and describe it thoroughly; you can just give a quick overview as to what the picture is trying to convey, what is in the picture. And then another one being another failure type a is form input labels; labels that are not labeled correctly. I wrote a article about that [chuckles] on CSS-Tricks and that is, there's programmatic and there's accessible names for form labels that not only help the accessibility side of it, as far as making the site accessible, but also it helps screen reader users read forms and navigate through forms, keyboard users also. Then you have empty links and then a big one that I've seen lately is if you look up in the source code, you see the HTML tag, and the language attribute, a lot of sites now, because they use trademarks, they don't have a document language. I ran across a lot of sites that don't use a document language. They're using a framework. I won't name names because I'm not out to shame, but having that attribute helps screen reader users and I think that's a big thing. A lot of accessibility, people don't understand. People use screen readers, or other assistive technologies, for instance, Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice input. But at the same time, I've got to also add accessibility is more than just deaf, or blind. I suffer from migraines, migraine headaches so animation, or motion from say, parallax scrolling can trigger a migraine. Animations that are too fast, that also trigger migraine headache. You have flashing content that can potentially cause seizures and that's actually happened before where an animated GIF was intentionally sent to someone and it caused a seizure and almost killed the person. So there's those and then the last thing on this list that I'm looking at right now, and these are common failures, empty buttons. You have buttons that don't have labels. Buttons that have Click here. Buttons need to be descriptive. So you want to have – on my site to send me something on the contact form, it's Send this info to Todd, Click here, or something similar like that. MAE: Can you think of any, John that you know of, too? I've got a couple of mind. How about you, Mandy? MANDY: For me, because I'm just starting out, I don't know a whole lot about accessibility. That's why I'm here; I'm trying to learn. But I am really conscious and careful of some of the GIFs that I use, because I do know that some of the motion ones, especially really fast-moving ones, can cause problems, migraines, seizures for people. So when posting those, I'm really, really mindful about it. JOHN: Yeah, the Click here one is always bothers me too, because not only is it bad accessibility, it's bad UX. Like HTML loves you to turn anything into a link so you can make all the words inside the button and it's just fine. [laughs] There's so many other ways to do it that are just – even discounting the accessibility impact, which I don't want it. TODD: Yeah, and touching upon that, I'm glad you brought up the button because I was just going to let that go [chuckles] past me. I have to say and I think it was in the email where it said, “What's bothering you?” What bothers me is people that don't use the button. If you are using a div, or an anchor tag, or a span, stop it. [laughs] Just stop it. There's a button element for that. I read somewhere that anchor tag takes you somewhere, a div is a container, but button is for a button. MAE: I love that. The only other ones I could think of is related to something you said, making sure to have tab order set up properly to allow people to navigate. Again, I liked your point about you don't have to be fully blind to benefit from these things and having keyboard accessibility can benefit a lot of people for all kinds of reasons. The other one is, and I would love to hear everybody's thoughts on this one, I have heard that we're supposed to be using h1, h2, h3 and having proper setup of our HTML and most of us fail just in that basic part. That's another way of supporting people to be able to navigate around and figure out what's about to be on this page and how much should I dig into it? So more on non-visual navigation stuff. TODD: Yeah, heading structure is hugely important for keyboard users and screen reader users as well as tab order and that's where semantic HTML comes into play. If you're running semantic HTML, HTML by default, save for a few caveats, is accessible right out of the box. If your site and somebody can navigate through using let's say, the keyboard turns and they can navigate in a way that is structurally logical, for instance and it has a flow to it that makes sense, then they're going to be able to not only navigate that site, but if you're selling something on that site, you're going to have somebody buying something probably. So that's again, where tab order and heading structure comes into play and it's very important. JOHN: I would assume, and correct me if I'm wrong, or if you know this, that the same sort of accessibility enhancements are available in native mobile applications that aren't using each HTML, is that correct? TODD: Having not delved into the mobile side of things with apps myself, that I really can't answer. I can say, though, that the WCAG guidelines, that does pertain to mobile as well as desktop. There's no certain set of rules. 2.2 is where there are some new features that from mobile, for instance, target size and again, I wrote another article on CSS-Tricks about target size as well. So it's if you ever noticed those little ads that you just want to click off and get off your phone and they have those little tiny Xs and you're sitting there tapping all day? Those are the things target size and dragging movements as well. I did an audit for an app and there was a lot of buttons that were not named. A lot of the accessibility issues I ran into were the same as I would run into doing an audit on a website. I don't know anything about Swift, or Flutter, or anything like that, they pretty much fall into the same category with [inaudible] as far as accessible. JOHN: I also wanted to circle back on the first item that you listed as far as the WebAIM million thing was color contrast, which is one of those ones where a designer comes up with something that looks super cool and sleek, but it's dark gray on a light gray background. It looks great when you've got perfect eyesight, but anybody else, they're just like, “Oh my God, what's that?” That's also one of the things that's probably easiest to change site-wide; it's like you go in and you tweak the CSS and you're done in a half hour and you've got the whole site updated. So it's a great bit of low-hanging fruit that you can attach if you want to start on this process. TODD: Yeah. Color contrast is of course, as the report says, this is the number one thing and let me look back here. It's slowly, the numbers are dropping, but 85.3%, that's still a very high number of failures and there's larger text. If you're using anything over 18 pixels, or the equivalent of 18—it's either 18 points, or 18 pixels—is a 3:1 ratio. With that color contrast is how our brains perceive color. It's not the actual contrast of that color and there are people far more qualified than me going to that, or that can go into that. So what I'll say is I've seen a lot of teams and companies, “Yeah, we'll do a little over 4.5:1 and we'll call it a day.” But I always say, if you can do 7:1, or even 10:1 on your ratios and you can find a way to make your brand, or whatever the same, then go for it. A lot of the time you hear, “Well, we don't want to change the colors of our brand.” Well, your colors of your brand aren't accessible to somebody who that has, for instance, Tritanopia, which is, I think it's blues and greens are very hard to see, or they don't see it at all. Color deficiencies are a thing that design teams aren't going to check for. They're just not. Like you said, all these colors look awesome so let's just, we're going to go with that on our UI. That's one thing that I actually ran into on that SAAS product that I spoke about earlier was there was these colors and these colors were a dark blue, very muted dark blue with orange text. You would think the contrast would be oh yeah, they would be all right, but it was horrible. JOHN: You can get browser plugins, that'll show you what the page looks like. So you can check these things yourself. Like you can go in and say, “Oh, you're right. That's completely illegible.” TODD: Yeah. Firefox, like I have right here on my work machine. I have right here Firefox and it does this. There's a simulator for a visual color deficiencies. It also checks for contrast as well. Chrome has one, which it actually has a very cool eyedropper to check for color contrast. If you use the inspector also in Firefox, that brings up a little contrast thing. The WAVE extension has a contrast tool. There's also a lot of different apps. If you have a Mac, like I do, I have too many color contrast because I love checking out these color contrast apps. So I have about five different color contrast apps on my Mac, but there's also websites, too that you can use at the same time. Just do a search for polar contrast. Contrast Ratio, contrast-ratio.com, is from Lea Verou. I use that one a lot. A lot of people use that one. There's so many of them out there choose from, but they are very handy tool at designer's disposal and at developers' disposal as well. JOHN: So I'm trying to think of, like I was saying earlier, the color contrast one is one of those things that's probably very straightforward; you can upgrade your whole site in a short amount of time. Color contrast is a little trickier because it gets into branding and marketing's going to want to care about it and all that kind of stuff. So you might have a bit more battle around that, but it could probably be done and you might be able to fix, at least the worst parts of the page that have problems around that. So I'm just trying to think of the ways that you could get the ball rolling on this kind of a work. Like if you can get those early easy wins, it's going to get more people on board with the process and not saying like, “Oh, it's going to take us eight months and we have to go through every single page and change it every forum.” That sounds really daunting when you think about it and so, trying to imagine what those easy early wins are that can get people down that road. TODD: Yeah. Starting from the very outset of the project is probably the key one: incorporating accessibility from the start of the project. Like I said earlier, it's a lot easier when you do it from the start rather than waiting till the very end, or even after the product has been launched and you go back and go, “Oh, well, now we need to fix it.” You're not only putting stress on your teams, but it's eating up time and money because you're now paying everybody to go back and look at all these accessibility issues there. Having one person as a dedicated accessibility advocate on each team helps immensely. So you have one person on the development team, one person on the dev side, one person on the marketing team, starting from the top. If somebody goes there to a stakeholder and says, “Listen, we need to start incorporating accessibility from the very start, here's why,” Nine times out of ten, I can guarantee you, you're probably going to get that stakeholder onboard. That tenth time, you'll have to go as far as maybe I did and say, “Well, Domino's Pizza, or Bank of America, or Target.” Again, their ears are going to perk up and they're going to go, “Oh, well, I don't really, we don't want to get sued.” So that, and going back to having one person on each team: training. There are so many resources out there for accessibility training. There are companies out there that train, there are companies that you can bring in to the organization that will train, that'll help train. That's so easier than what are we going to do? A lot of people just sitting there in a room and go, “How are you going to do this?” Having that person in each department getting together with everybody else, that's that advocate for each department, meeting up and saying, “Okay, we're going to coordinate. You're going to put out a fantastic product that's going to be accessible and also, at the same time, the financial aspect is going to make the company money. But most of all, it's going to include a lot of people that are normally not included if you're putting out an accessible product.” Because if you go to a certain website, I can guarantee you it's going to be inaccessible—just about 99% of the web isn't accessible—and it's going to be exclusive as it's going to – somebody is going to get shut out of the site, or app. So this falls on the applications as well. Another thing too, I just wanted to throw in here for color contrast. There are different – you have color contrast text, but you also have non-text contrast, you have texts in images, that kind of contrast as well and it does get a little confusing. Let's face it, the guidelines right now, it's a very technically written – it's like a technical manual. A lot of people come up to me and said, “I can't read this. I can't make sense of this. Can you translate this?” So hopefully, and this is part of the work that I'm doing with a lot of other people in the W3C is where making the language of 3.0 in plain language, basically. It's going to be a lot easier to understand these guidelines instead of all that technical jargon. I look at something right now and I'm scratching my head when I'm doing an audit going, “Okay, what do they mean by this?” All these people come together and we agree on what to write. What is the language that's going to go into this? So when they got together 2.0, which was years and years ago, they said, “Okay, this is going to be how we're going to write this and we're going to publish this,” and then we had a lot of people just like me scratching their heads of not understanding it. So hopefully, and I'm pretty sure, 99.9% sure that it's going to be a lot easier for people to understand. MAE: That sounds awesome. And if you end up needing a bunch of play testers, I bet a lot of our listeners would be totally willing to put in some time. I know I would. Just want to put in one last plug for anybody out there who really loves automating things and is trying to avoid relying on any single developer, or designer, or QA person to remember to check for accessibility is to build it into your CI/CD pipeline. There are a lot of different options. Another approach to couple with that, or do independently is to use the axe core gems, and that link will be in the show notes, where it'll allow you to be able to sprinkle in your tests, accessibility checks on different pieces. So if we've decided we're going to handle color contrast, cool, then it'll check that. But if we're not ready to deal with another point of accessibility, then we can skip it. So it's very similar to Robocop. Anyway, just wanted to offer in some other tips and tricks of the trade to be able to get going on accessibility and then once you get that train rolling, it can do a little better, but it is hard to start from scratch. JOHN: That's a great tip, Mae. Thank you. TODD: Yeah, definitely. MANDY: Okay. Well, with that, I think it's about time we head into reflections; the point of the show, where we talk about something that we thought stood out, that we want to think about more, or a place that we can call for a call of action to our listeners, or even to ourselves. Who wants to go first? MAE: I can go first. I learned something awesome from you, Todd, which I have not thought of before, which is if I am eyeballing for “contrast,” especially color contrast, that's not necessarily what that means. I really appreciate learning that and we'll definitely be applying that in my daily life. [chuckles] So thanks for teaching me a whole bunch of things, including that. TODD: You're welcome. JOHN: I think for me, it's just the continuing reminder to – I do like the thinking that, I think Mae have brought up and also Todd was talking about earlier at the beginning about how we're all of us temporarily not disabled and that I think it helps bring some of that empathy a little closer to us. So it makes it a little more accessible to us to realize that it's going to happen to us at some point, at some level, and to help then bring that empathy to the other people who are currently in that state and really that's, I think is a useful way of thinking about it. Also, the idea that I've been thinking through as we've been talking about this is how do we get the ball rolling on this? We have an existing application that's 10 years old that's going to take a lot to get it there, but how do we get the process started so we feel like we're making progress there rather than just saying, “Oh, we did HTML form 27 out of 163. All right, back at it tomorrow.” It's hard to think about, so feeling like there's progress is a good thing. TODD: Yeah, definitely and as we get older, our eyes, they're one of the first things to go. So I'm going to need assistive technology at some point so, yeah. And then what you touched upon, John. It may be daunting having to go back and do the whole, “Okay, what are we going to do for accessibility now that this project, it's 10 years old, 15 years old?” The SAAS project that I was talking about, it was 15-year-old code, .net. I got people together; one from each department. We all got together and we ended up making that product accessible for them. So it can be done. [laughs] It can be done. JOHN: That's actually a good point. Just hearing about successes in the wild with particularly hard projects is a great thing. Because again, I'm thinking about it at the start of our project and hearing that somebody made it all through and maybe even repeatedly is hard. TODD: Yeah. It's not something that once it's done, it's done. Accessibility, just like the web, is an ever-evolving media. MANDY: For me. I think my reflection is going to be, as a new coder, I do want to say, I'm glad that we talked about a lot of the things that you see that aren't currently accessible that can be accessible. One of those things is using alt tags and right now, I know when I put the social media posts out on Twitter, I don't use the alt tags and I should. So just putting an alt tag saying, “This is a picture of our guest, Todd” and the title of the show would probably be helpful for some of our listeners. So I'm going to start doing that. So thank you. TODD: You're welcome. I'm just reminded of our talk and every talk that I have on a podcast, or with anybody just reminds me of the work that I have to do and the work that is being done by a lot of different people, other than myself as well, as far as advocacy goes in that I don't think it's ever going to be a job that will ever go away. There will always be a need for accessibility advocacy for the web and it's great just to be able to sit down and talk to people about accessibility and what we need to do to make the web better and more inclusive for everybody. Because I tweet out a lot, “Accessibility is a right, not a privilege,” and I really feel that to my core because the UN specifically says that the internet is a basic human and I went as far as to go say, “Well, so as an accessibility of that internet as well.” So that is my reflection. MAE: I'll add an alt tag for me right now is with a fist up and a big smile and a lot of enthusiasm in my heart. MANDY: Awesome. Well, thank you so much for coming on the show, Todd. It's been really great talking with you and I really appreciate you coming on the show to share with us your knowledge and your expertise on the subject of accessibility. So with that, I will close out the show and say we do have a Slack and Todd will be invited to it if he'd like to talk more to us and the rest of the Greater Than Code community. You can visit patreon.com/greaterthancode and pledge to support us monthly and again, if you cannot afford that, or do not want to pledge to help run the show, you can DM anyone of us and we will get you in there for free because we want to make the Slack channel accessible for all. Have a great week and we'll see you next time. Goodbye! Special Guest: Todd Libby.

The term can mean anything from what the LA Galaxy did with Gyasi Zardes to what they're trying to do with a young player like Alex Alcala. So what does it mean to an organization like the Galaxy? On today's special edition of Corner of the Galaxy, host Josh Guesman is joined by LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese for over 60 minutes of youth development discussion. Josh and Dennis will cover topics that range from why scouting and development are different and what the goal for the club is when developing players. Why scouting is an essential part of the equation, and what it takes to make these ventures pay off? They'll also discuss how the landscape has shifted in MLS and why going to Europe to develop seems to be something of the past and not something of the future. What are the pitfalls of youth development for a young player, and why is it so important to have parental buy-in and parental education. And why the interests of the club can usually match the interests of the player. And Josh will even throw in some important questions at the end, just to make sure everyone makes it through the discussion. This is an unprecedented look into the theories and the thought processes behind the Galaxy's development system and what Dennis sees as the next steps for the program. It's also why he views it as unfinished business! A big thank you to Dennis for taking the time to talk to us about this subject. And yes, he is definitely messing with you on Instagram.

The term can mean anything from what the LA Galaxy did with Gyasi Zardes to what they're trying to do with a young player like Alex Alcala. So what does it mean to an organization like the Galaxy? On today's special edition of Corner of the Galaxy, host Josh Guesman is joined by LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese for over 60 minutes of youth development discussion. Josh and Dennis will cover topics that range from why scouting and development are different and what the goal for the club is when developing players. Why scouting is an essential part of the equation, and what it takes to make these ventures pay off? They'll also discuss how the landscape has shifted in MLS and why going to Europe to develop seems to be something of the past and not something of the future. What are the pitfalls of youth development for a young player, and why is it so important to have parental buy-in and parental education. And why the interests of the club can usually match the interests of the player. And Josh will even throw in some important questions at the end, just to make sure everyone makes it through the discussion. This is an unprecedented look into the theories and the thought processes behind the Galaxy's development system and what Dennis sees as the next steps for the program. It's also why he views it as unfinished business! A big thank you to Dennis for taking the time to talk to us about this subject. And yes, he is definitely messing with you on Instagram. Thanks for listening and Watching!

Can the Galaxy look at that game and feel good about themselves? Of course they can't. That was a loss. A 3-0 loss and no amount of stat manipulation will get you to feel good about that game. So we probably won't try that tactic this time. Probably. On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy's penchant for losing games in which they allow the opposition to score first. And we think it's pretty obvious to say we've fixed the Galaxy without really trying that hard. Will world peace be next? Josh and Kevin discuss the loss to Minnesota and why the stats actually do tell the story if you want to read them right. So why did Greg Vanney put many of his starters on the bench for that game? And why does this team need to figure out their level? Plus, if you could get one player to play at their peak for the next nine games, who has the most significant effect on this team down the stretch? The guys will also talk about the Galaxy's schedule, MLS's scheduled, and why you should be scoreboard watching on Saturday and Sunday night. Yes, it's that time of the year where you need to see what every game brings in order to try and place the Galaxy into the bigger picture. Are you confident the Galaxy are still making the playoffs? We've got a great show for you tonight that should spark some conversation around the water cooler. Wait, is there water cooler talk during a pandemic? Thanks for listening!

Houston didn't play like the lousy team they are, but you still expect the Galaxy to win a game like that at home. Is Chicharito right? Are the Galaxy lacking ambition? On today's podcast, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to dive headfirst into all the disappointing Galaxy feelings that are inhabiting your body and get you to a point where you're ready for the final ten games of the season. Josh and Eric will start by introducing you to our newest podcast game: Secret Word. That's where you try to guess what our secret word is during the show. Then send us an email. Maybe you'll win something? Perhaps you won't? The guys will dig into the draw with the Houston Dynamo and discuss some individual players who looked like they didn't belong on the field for the first half. And there's one name in here that is playing himself out of a starting position and a contract. Plus, the guys will discuss the bad calls the Galaxy were handed and why there probably should have been a penalty for the club in the second half. That being said, if Chicharito buries his 88th-minute shot, the Galaxy get all three points regardless of the bad calls down the stretch. Eric will tell you what he thinks is the best XI for the Galaxy, and Josh will cheat to tell you why Eric is wrong. But who would you start in this important game at Minnesota? Are you looking to pair Dejan Joveljić with Chicharito? Do you want a lineup you can build into? And how do you handle rotations with getting your best guys on the field? But the guys will also give you some ammunition to make those choices and explain who is making a difference on the score sheet and who isn't. So you're going to be ready for the discussion. Finally, Josh and Eric will tell you what they think of this weekend Minnesota game and why it's going to be a tougher game but also might set up well for the Galaxy. Maybe this is the one they steal, again? We've got a great show for you, and we're glad you could stick around and listen to two crazy guys go on and on about the Galaxy. Also, hi Carter and Scott!

But can you claim that the Galaxy deserved more from that very even affair? On today's show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter will get you updated on the Galaxy information you need for the jump start to a hectic week for the team from Los Angeles. That will include hearing from Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez for the first time since June and what Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney thinks of this Houston Dynamo team now that they snapped a very long winless streak. Josh and Kevin will start with the draw against the Colorado Rapids. They'll talk about the play of Chicharito and why the Galaxy left two or three big plays on the table when facing off against the second-best team in the Western Conference. Can you pencil LA into the number four spot in the West? Or could a busy September, and some dropped points, mean the Galaxy will be scrambling toward the end of the season? The guys will transition to an overlooked Galaxy defender, and why you should probably never count out Dan Steres. After all, he got a Team of the Week nod in his return to the starting lineup and helped the Galaxy limit the Rapids to just three shots on goal. But the September schedule should have you nervous. Josh and Kevin will go over the Galaxy's close to this short and compact month and look at all the road games that should have fans more than a little on edge. If the Galaxy are going to come together, now would be a great time to do it. Finally, the guys look at a Houston Dynamo team that is bad. And even though they just won, they're still bad. And that means these are probably the easiest three points of the season. Which also means they will be anything but easy. We've got a packed show for you today, and we're very, very glad you could join us.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for September 14, 2021 is: responsive • rih-SPAHN-siv • adjective Responsive means "quick to respond or react in a desired or appropriate manner." // The Senator was responsive to the concerns voiced by the town's council and residents. // The eye contains cells that are responsive to light. See the entry > Examples: "A mobile responsive website is one that adapts to fit different screens, most notably mobile phones. It can do this in a number of ways that improve visibility and usability. For example, a mobile responsive site will have pictures that change to fit the screen size. Buttons and text will do the same, so they can all be viewed properly on a phone screen." — June Potter, The Times Union (Albany, New York), 17 June 2021 Did you know? Responsive comes from the joining of Latin responsus with the suffix -ivus, which gave English -ive. That suffix changes verbs into adjectives, as in suggestive or corrosive. Responsus is a form of respondēre, which means "to answer" and is the source of English's respond. Responsive enters the language with the meaning "giving response" or "answering." Examples are "a responsive letter" or "a responsive glance." Nowadays, it variously describes people or things that immediately respond or react to something, such as "a responsive audience" or "a car with responsive steering."

Are the Galaxy prepared to start winning right now? And are they ready to get Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez back on the field? Today's show will get you ready for the Galaxy's next game against the Colorado Rapids. And that's going to be a massive test for a team that doesn't know what their best lineup is and is having to go to altitude to try and beat a team they haven't beat since 2017. Hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss the Galaxy's media conference call and tell you about the positivity exuding from Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney. Will Chicharito play in a single striker formation? Will Vanney pair with Dejan Joveljić? And what circumstances might the Galaxy use Chicharito in during the game? The guys will also talk about the Galaxy's odds to make the playoffs, according to FiveThirtyEight, and why betting on them to win MLS Cup might be a steal! But there's also talk from Josh and Eric about some international players returning that haven't been vaccinated. Will they be available for Saturday's game? And how could this hurt the team down the road when the next international window opens? We've got a packed show that is jammed with stats and information that will get you ready for the Rocky Mountain clash on Saturday. What was Josh's best advice about the game? Start drinking early! Thanks for joining us on the podcast today! And let's hope the Galaxy can find a way to make the final 12 games of the regular season a happy experience.
