There’s a great post over at Accessites about the various camps in the world of web accessibility entitled The Great Acceessibility Camp-out. Who are the two camps?
- Camp 1 - those who believe that accessibility is not just “solely being a physical or mental inability … [but also] include users with slow connections, old monitors, legacy equipment, and anything that puts a barrier between the user and the content they seek, not just poor eyesight or blindness, corrupt motor skills, or dyslexia”
- Camp 2 - those who believe that “web accessibility is about ensuring that people with disabilities are not discriminated against”
Whichever camp you are in, it can’t be harmful to accessibility as a whole. As for me - which camp am I in? I don’t need to set up camp - I bring my own with me
