Accessibility lessons: dealing with a large amount of form inputs

Screenshot of the option select component, the focus of the article.

I've written my third article for the GDS blog, about dealing with a large amount of form inputs. Read on for a bit more detail.

(I'm going to assume from this point that you've read it. Have you? Okay, good.)

This article came out of a show and tell I gave a few months ago about this piece of work, where one of the audience suggested it would make an interesting blog post. The story from there isn't particularly thrilling - I wrote it, got it reviewed by my team, got it reviewed by the accessibility team at GDS, and submitted it for publishing.

What was surprising was how quickly it got published - only a few days after I submitted it. Normally these things go through several layers of technical writers, who polish and polish, but this time that didn't happen. I'm not big headed enough to assume that's because my writing was so without flaw, but I am curious about it.

Anyway, what else to say? Not much, really, it's fairly self explanatory. If I think of anything else I'll add it in here later.
