"A well designed web page, mobile app, or software program should be usable for anyone. In addition to provided detailed advice on designing for accessibility, this book also provides realistic personas to highlight the needs of people from a diverse array of backgrounds and how accessible technology can have a positive impact on people's lives."

"While it's important to understand accessibility, it would be even better if more people were to give thought to accessibility and testing for accessibility in their design decisions, and early in the process make the case that Accessibility to all users (or as many as possible) is an important part of our mission as product owner, creators, designers and testers. Sarah Horton and Whitney Quesenbery approach this challenge and this mission with their book "A Web For Everyone". More than just ways to code and test for accessibility, this book attempts to help anyone who creates software applications to develop the understanding and the empathy necessary to make design decisions that truly help to make "A Web for Everyone" possible."

While this is certainly embarrassing, it's not a bad thing to admit it that I've been doing this all wrong. I like to think it just makes me a better person, personally as well as business wise. The reason I just told you about this shortcoming of mine, which I promise to not practice anymore, is because too many people don't take accessibility into consideration." Full Review >
