UPDATE: Since this article was first written, Jason has implemented a very useful archive for Northtemple, including everything tagged with “accessibility”.
ORIGINAL POST: We have a lot of traffic coming to North Temple to read Aaron’s Accessibility Checklist (the one he vowed he’d never write). While you’re here you might check out some older accessibility posts (still working on that archive, right Jason?):
- The Accessibility Cookbook: a Recipe for Disaster. Aaron’s take on how checklists can be bad, the foregoing link notwithstanding.
- Is Adobe Flex Really Accessible?
- Adobe Flex is Accessible? Show me. Aaron’s follow-up to critiques of his earlier post.
- Google Docs will never become the dominant word processor unless…
- In order to keep out spammers and blind people, please type the characters you see below. The evils of captchas.
Plus a collection of short quotes and links:
- A video snippet from Aaron Cannon’s presentation here at LDS headquarters, November 2007
- Testing Web Site Accessibility
- Accessibility for Currency
- For some reason, some folks get it into their heads that being blind is really terrible…
- A great article on ARIA and how it can be used to make AJAX apps more accessible…
- OpenDNS adds audio support to their CAPTCHA
- Personas of Persons with Disabilities
- In our opinion, disability rights groups, legislators and standards bodies place too much emphasis on adherence to the WCAG cookbook and not enough on creating sites that are accessible in practice…
- Vroom is not the word for car, either.
- I like to hear my name in print.
- Colorblind gamers
(By the way, and totally unrelated to accessibility, Microsoft’s Live search helped me find all this stuff with their site search where Google failed… What’s up with that?)
