Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 28, 2012

Show Notes  

Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.

Many people take for granted their ability to go to a web site to get information, interact with other people or even order a pizza. However, not everyone knows that if a web site doesn't include simple accessibility features, some visitors or customers of that web site might not have access.  The World Wide Web Consortium has a long-standing initiative to help the builders of web sites to make their content more accessible to users of assistive technology.  Check our show notes for a link to their web site to learn more.

For more information, to read our blog or to drop us a line, visit That was your accessibility minute for this week. I’m Wade Wingler with the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads, in Indiana.
