I was both shocked and amused by the comments of a couple women a few years ago. I was zooming down the sidewalk on a sunny summer afternoon. I was wearing my wrap-around sunglasses. I was with my mobility assistance dog.
I received an email from a friend who is attending a11yMTL, a conference about web accessibility. Mimi is a graphic designer, who happens to be a wheelchair user. As she knows I grew up in Montréal and have accessibility of both physical structures and the web at heart, she shared with me some of her thoughts. I asked her if I could publish her email here because these are powerful consideration.
Someone pointed me to the Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation’s Website this morning, with a single question: "What do you make of this?". So I went to the site. And the words failed me. I couldn’t quite believe what I saw. The entire site is one big Flash object. You don’t get much LESS accessible than that.
