Web accessibility presentation and resources

Download the slides for my presentation on Web Accessibility for the Charlotte User Experience group, as well as get links to related resources on accessibility techniques and tools.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking at a meeting of the Charlotte User Experience group. I talked about the basics of web accessibility: what it is, who it affects, why it matters, and some of the fundamental things you ought to be doing in your pages to make them more accessible.

You can view the slides on SlideShare, or download the slides here:

Here are several links to related resources, some of which are in the slides plus many that were not but which I recommend and think you’ll find useful.

    Thanks
