Alexander Dawson published this article today that really got me thinking. I’ve been studying and following the complex issues surrounding accessibility on the Internet since 2003 or so, when I was the webmaster at The University of Texas at Austin and was asked to design 503-compliant sites for the first time. Little has changed, in my opinion, since those days and this article does a good job to lay things out and explain what’s right and what’s wrong. He then gives some suggestions as to how to improve the system. I strongly believe that every designer should read and understand what is going in this area and learn what they can do to create better, more accessible sites.
