Accessible Web Design with Glenda and Sharron – Practical Links

Today has been a busy day. We confirmed Sharron Rush for our September Netsquared Meetup in Houston. Sharron’s organization is knowbility and she previously published a book on accessible web design (new version coming soon, right Sharron?).

And speaking of accessibility, I also met Glenda Sims at NetSquared last week in San Jose. Glenda, the good witch (although her sense of humor regarding signs is odd for a "good" witch. hmmm.) Glenda has a great post on her blog on a list of practical resources for accessible web design. <Snip>

3) Test with toolbars – (Web Developer Extension & Web Accessibility Toolbar) turn off CSS, turn off Javascript, set to Greyscale, display structure (headings, lists…)

and number 6 is great as well

6) Run a sitewide accessibility reportLIFT or WebXM (direct link to WebXM Page test)

Read the full "Practical Accessibility" post on Brenda’s site for more practial methods for accessible web design.

Sharron, Glenda and even Houston’s own Kelsey are also active in AIRS. Making the web more accessible, one web site at a time.
