Accessibility is often treated as an afterthought when making apps and websites.
Part of the reason why, I think, is that many of us don’t really understand the design considerations we should be thinking about to open up our content to people with disabilities and the elderly. And, as Jeffrey Zeldman says, “Accessibility is like the weather: everyone talks about it, but not enough of us do anything about it.”
So I was happy to see this Kickstarter from the people at Knowbility to develop training materials for people who want to be more inclusive – and I’ve just backed it because I know I could use some help figuring out how to make my sites better in this regard.
Watch the video, chip in, and help spread the word before the end of October.
