Webnauts Launches Accessibility Forums
:: Tuesday, October 04, 2005 ::
As I delve deeper into special needs web design, I'm finding its best practices are sometimes confusing. One example is whether or not it's helpful to use both the Alt and Title Attribute behind images, or pick just one.
The well-respected Webnauts Academy have launched a new forums on accessibility. Topics include "Accessible Site Building, Optimization and Testing", "Usable Site Building, Optimization and Testing", " Search Engine Friendly Site Building, Optimization" and more.
One interesting find from these forums is the Google and Accessibility resource. Best of luck Webnauts.net as they embark into the wacky world of Internet forums.
I appreciate easy to understand resources. For accessibility, there's an unfortunate stigma that whatever must be done is going to be a pain in the neck to implement.
That's why I like lists. Here is one from one of my favorite sites, called Your Total Site. It's an Accessibility Checklist
I've found this document very helpful too. Guidelines for Accessible and Usable Web Sites: Observing Users Who Work With Screen Readers. It's illustrated and not overly technical.
Lastly, if you're familiar with "Mr. Ploppy", you know that Todd Mailcoat (aka "Stuntdubl") is good at compiling resources. He's gathered together a list of Mr. Ploppy's Usability and Accessbility Tools, some of which you may not have heard of yet.
