Designing Web Sites for Accessibility

How are you reading this?

Are you a person using a handheld small-screen device ... or a screen reader ... limited by a slow modem ... do you have to concentrate mightily to understand ... are you anxious and a millisecond of a click away?

Your concern as a web site designer is making sure to include these people in your audience. We all want to see our message get through.

Who have you included with your present approach? Who have you excluded? These are the issues and concerns of this site.

This site is for you - the web designer or administrator who would like to know more about web site accessibility, which focuses on your audience. I will offer simple, straight talk and strive to make your time worthwhile.
