From Twitter: Your annual reminder that -select is not accessible to screen reader users and does not follow the ARIA specification for custom controls.

This library is the reason for many blocker issues on the web. It affects us all.

@devinprater WHAT! My company just put that into our code. We just want a searchable dropdown list for 1000 items. It is okay for mouse use (not best) and from their website . "Accessibility is important. React-select is committed to providing a custom experience to all users and relies heavily on the aria-live spec to provide a custom experience for all users."

@dean Wow. Yeah the Github issues should speak louder than the accessibility statement.

@devinprater my company used this component for a while, but we started looking for a replacement once I realized how inaccessible it was
