“Solving Web Accessibility: Leaving No One Behind.” white paper by David Berman

Posted on by

I want to let you know about a white paper recently published, called “Solving Web Accessibility: Leaving No One Behind.” I wrote it with 3Play Media (when we send media out for captioning, 3Play is our first choice: check them out).

Grab a copy… you may find it helpful, both in your own work and to explain what accessibility professionals like us are up to all over the planet. Just another way to achieve accessible websites and documents without tradeoffs for all.

No time for white papers? No worries: if I had to say it all while standing on one foot, it’d be: “When we design well for the extremes, everyone benefits … if we know how! You’ll broaden your audience, drive down costs, and feel good doing good!”

Here’s what 3Play says about the white paper…

It’s a free white paper on web accessibility benefits and guidelines. The 16-page paper was co-authored by accessibility expert David Berman.

    • The benefits of making your web content accessible

    This white paper is intended for administrators and developers of website content, media producers, accessibility coordinators, as well as instructional designers and education technologists.

Worldwide, more than one billion people have a disability. Disability affects one in three families in North America, and if it doesn’t affect yours, it is almost a certainty that it affects someone close to you. What is important to note when looking at these statistics is that, while these numbers already make up a significant percentage of the national and global population, the proportion of people living with a disability is growing.

With miraculous medical and technological advancement comes a critical need to improve accessibility measures to accommodate the growing population of individuals with disabilities. This white paper is intended for administrators and developers of website content, media producers, accessibility coordinators, as well as instructional designers and technologists. This paper will provide you with a deeper understanding of web accessibility and will cover the following topics:

  • The benefits of making your web content accessible
  • Types of disabilities and online challenges
  • Assistive technologies for different types of disabilities
  • What is necessary in creating an accessible digital experience
  • The legal landscape of accessibility
  • Tips for improving your web accessibility
  • Conforming with WCAG 2.0, ADA, and AODA
  • Resources for accessibility compliance
