Understanding accessibility

August 14th, 2003 Comments Off on Understanding accessibility

One of the hardest things for Web developers to do when building or designing a site is to put themselves in the shoes of people suffering from some kind of disability and think about the site’s accessibility.

Dave Shea, of CSS Zen Garden fame, points to an excellent demonstration of how simple design decisions can cause major problems for disabled people (even for people with small disabilities). It’s a good way to see how one must think about the issues involved. The demonstration also shows how some of the problems can be solved.
