Another day another article on websites not being accessible.
Why is it so hard for people to create websites that are accessible? What are the barriers? An accessible website doesn’t have to curb the creative juices in any way – it just requires a little bit of thought. Decent code, decent information structure and some well thought out content and you are mostly there. Why does that seem to be such a struggle for so many? And, what’s more, doesn’t a site that is built well, has well laid out information and well thought out content suit everyone?
I tend to bang on about accessibility to anyone who will listen and do my very best to remind people that it isn’t just about people accessing a site with a screen reader. It shouldn’t be an afterthought or a restriction it should simply be one of the attributes of the quality of a site.
Get on with it.
