They require extra interaction just to get to additional content, often because some product owner thought the page was “too cluttered” after they jammed all their words into it (or assume users are incapable of scanning). Essentially accordions are lazy carousels for organizations that lack brevity”.

I begin my new (and hopefully, last) job, at an organisation not funded by Capitalist Conjurers, devoted to helping the most vulnerable people in society: children. I’ll be working Monday – Thursday, with Friday for other projects.
I’m pretty sure it’s not a secret who I’m working for, but I forgot to check with my boss and he’s on his hols. My job title is boring but I’m calling myself “Lord of Accessibility” at Barnardos, and have bought myself a crown.
