With Javascript, and without Javascript - “In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters”.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen a significant feature from the Times be completely inaccessible when Javascript is disabled.

For something that includes so much text I’d have expected it to fail gracefully (placeholder images, show text). Instead they kill everything (visibility: hidden on BODY tag)

This is not a criticism really. It makes me wonder how much I need to accommodate those with JS disabled but I do worry about accessibility and screen-readers…
