10/16/08 85 W - + 8 - 19 Understanding Disabilities When Designing a Web Site

From Digital Web magazine comes this exceptionally informative article about designing web sites to accommodate users with vision, hearing, physical, cognitive, and learning disabilities. Stats provide some context. In the US, 10M people have vision impairments, 28M have hearing impairments, 8M have physical disabilities, 6.8M have learning disabilities, and 25M have dyslexia. The article is worth reading, and the ideas are worth implementing. How does one check web site accessibility? Try the WAVE 4.0 site. You might be surprised.
