Post about web accessibility and developing aria tags in components.

Add Aria, A11y functionality into Components Automatically

Aria-Selected in Tabs, Pills, Carousels

Don't wait, bake aria functionality in

Aria-selected seems simple, but managing when element have focus can be tricky. Especially Pillboxes, Carousel List Boxes, Tab Lists, etc. Anything that shows or hides content, aria-selected is required. Doing this in a global selector, on click, makes it easy to focus on other areas.

The client I work for uses an older version of jQuery, so I am focused to use .delegate, don't do that, instead...

Focus on the issue at hand
