W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Releases Updated Versions of Several Useful Reference Resources
Updated: Easy Checks – A First Review of Web Accessibility
WAI’s Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has updated Easy Checks – A First Review of Web Accessibility. This resource helps you start to assess the accessibility of a web page. With these simple steps, you can get an idea whether or not accessibility is addressed in even the most basic way. These checks cover just a few accessibility issues and are designed to be quick and easy, rather than definitive. This update includes a new check on Moving, Flashing, or Blinking Content and instructions for the Web Developer Toolbar for multiple browsers.
Updated Resources: Planning and Managing Web Accessibility
WAI’s Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has updated these three resources:
- Web Accessibility First Aid: Approaches for Interim Repairs is intended to help with the situation: “I need to make my website accessible and I don’t even know where to start!” It provides guidance on addressing short-term accessibility fixes.
- Developing Organizational Policies on Web Accessibility helps you develop a simple or comprehensive web accessibility policy for an organization.
- Planning and Managing Web Accessibility helps you integrate accessibility throughout the web production process. It applies to individual projects and at the organizational level.
