    10 COMMANDMENTS OF WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    We keep hearing about something called 'accessibility' for websites. So what is it all about huh?

    Well, it is all about webmasters making sure that they give any disabled visitors who come to their site an equivalent experience to that which a non-disabled person would have. So, if your site has garish rainbow coloured text and is full of puerile nonsense, then you must inflict your garbage on disabled visitors (who probably have enough problems already) as well as the rest of us.

    How can you make sure your site is accessible?
    **********************************************

    Accessibility is a legal requirement in the UK and USA for government departments and anyone providing goods or services. Although personal homepages may be technically covered by accessibility laws (don't ask me, I'm not a lawyer) you probably would not be prosecuted for infringing the rules on an ordinary personal home page.

    But if you are worried about accessibility, use one of the free online validators. There are lots of them. The one most people know is Bobby (http://webxact.watchfire.com).

    Rebels
    ******

    Some people though, get far too obsessed with accessibility rules. The Web does need some rules. But people seem to forget that it also needs innovators, mavericks and rebels just as much. Otherwise the Web and all of us who use it will probably all die of boredom.

    But if you do need the rules, here they are.
