I noticed via Twitter, that Adobe has put my book CSS Animations and Transitions for the Modern Web on sale this week. It’s the ebook Deal of the Week.
It’s one thing understand the basic principles and guidelines for making your site more accessible and another thing to actually meet those guidelines.
Where do you start? Where do you find the guidance to help you build more accessible websites and web apps? Both are questions I asked myself when I began this journey into learning more about web accessibility. I found the initial guidance I was looking for in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
If I ask what it means to develop accessible websites, what would you say? Would you respond that accessibility means adding code for screen readers? Is there anything more? Does accessibility start and end with screen readers?
I don’t pay as much attention to accessibility as I should. I suspect it’s the same for many web designers and developers. We know we should do more, but it’s often something we’ll get to and not something we actually do.
