Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Please take some time to get involved with the community, help out and spread the word.
From my previous post on the Future of Web Accessibility in Canada, the latest judgment has now come in from the Federal Court of Canada in favour of Donna Jodhan.
I’m a definite proponent of ‘skip links’ with any site I build. In addition to being an essential part of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – 2.4.1. – Bypass Blocks, I firmly believe that skip links are valuable for a more effective user experience. I just do mine a little differently.
With the current discussion around the recently announced Temple Gate, an accessible HTML 5 WordPress theme, I figured I’d give it a quick review to see how the site measures up in regards to accessibility, usability and overall design.
If you care anything about web and accessibility standards as much as I do, then you should be paying attention to a landmark that is challenging the Federal Government of Canada and it’s current state of web accessibility. Updated as of 29 November 2010
