Pushing the Limits of Accessibility

Andrew Kirkpatrick — project manager for NCAM projects dealing with web and rich media accessibility at the CPB/WGBH — talked about advanced accessibility challenges at the recent Web Design World 2004 conference in Boston.

When it comes to improving Web site accessibility, most designers know the basics. That’s great, but it isn’t enough. A growing number of sites employ complex forms, Web applications, dynamically updating pages, and JavaScript enhancements?and each of these elements brings its own set of accessibility challenges. In his Web Design World session, Andrew Kirkpatrick described today’s accessibility bottlenecks along with the development decisions you must make to address them, and weighed the pros and cons of automatic page transcoding tools.
