At Web Usability, we work to make the web more usable for everybody, including those with disabilities. We work with not-for-profit organisations, corporate and government clients.
We also undertake research into the use of the web by different sections of the community. Find out more in the research section of the site.
Transcript of the GAAD talk. The disabled and their carers are among the most marginalised in our community. It is time we moved beyond the blaming of others such as the government and industry, to a greater acceptance that we all need to place a higher priority on accessibility.
The second in this series of articles about improving the accessibility of web page forms looks at different ways to mark-up required (mandatory) form fields and provide additional information that maybe necessary to understand or correctly complete a form.
The first in a new series of articles about improving the accessibility of forms looks at ways to identify and group form controls, including the use of implicit and explicit labels, title attributes, and fieldset and legend.
Web content accessibility is being increasingly viewed solely from the perspective of how well a site complies with WCAG 2 rather than how well people with disabilities can access the content. Slides and speakers notes from my CSUN 2013 talk that considered this issue and outlined a new Accessibility Priority Tool to help organisations identify and correct likely access barriers to their web content.
news & events
The new Web Usability website contains material from both the old site as well as my personal blog, DingoAccess. All the usability, accessibility and general web-related articles I write will now be on this one new site rather than being spread between two sites.
I hope you like the new site and find the information it contains useful.
GAAD is on 9 May. Events in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane. Sydney event at Mrs B Hotel 396 Pitt Street at 6.30pm. For more details go to http://www.a11ybytes.org/.
