This is a post from Chris Lona of CL Design. He is unapologetically challenging the “status quo” or in his words “disrupting [current] best practices” for web accessibility. WHY? Because for too many alt-abled folks (like us!), access is just the first part. What about equality ?
We urge you to read what Chris has to say and please let us know if you think access=equality on the web.
Web Accessibility Standards Do Not Provide “Equal Access”
the W3C is the standards body that sets and maintains the ‘standards’ for web accessibility. Are you required to acquire, install and learn assistive technology to use the web? People losing their vision are expected to do this.
