To hell with bad accessibility requirements

Sorry Jeffrey Zeldman for twisting your words, but they rang through my mind when I saw the latest missive from Joe Clark, the WCAG Samarai. Zeldman led the troops through the battle over standards guerrilla war against the browsers.

Now Joe is doffing his commanders uniform, I’m hoping it’s a rather smart one with sophisticated typography on the badge and non-leather jackboots. The Samarais will push, prod, and tease the WCAG into making accessibility an attainable goal.

Grab your katana.

Accessibility is more than making sure images have alternate text. I work with engineers, product managers, and designers to understand how accessibility impacts the users, set realistic deadlines, and create the solutions to provide a delightful experience to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive ability.
