WWW…Wednesday! Integrating Accessibility with Just Ask
Understanding web accessibility is important for web designers, and something they should take the time to explore. Web accessibility makes a site more universal and also can help improve the visual design and SEO as well.
A great online resource for understanding accessibility is Just Ask: Integrating Accessibility Through Design. Just Ask, written by Shaun Henry, introduces the important principles in accessibility and how to apply those principles to web design projects. The website includes information about creating user profiles, usability testing, and how to involve those with disabilities in the planning and design process to create a better user experience.
