Sarah Horton’s “Access by Design” online

The Universal Usability site houses an unabridged, online version of Access by Design: A Guide to Universal Usability for Web Designers, by Sarah Horton, published in 2005 by New Riders Press. You’ll find the complete text and illustrations from the printed book here under Access by Design Online. The online version also offers links to texts and tutorials that support and expand on the concepts covered in the book.

A wonderful book and now a great online resource…thanks Sarah!

  1. So says Tomas Caspers

    Umm, no. If this were the year 2000 and we were still in a transitional state where modern browsers and AT were just about to show up and we still had to cater for the Netscape 4 crowd while trying to be as forward-compatible as possible, then I would have agreed: yes, that’s some great ressource.
    Fortunately, we’re way beyond this state and I can’t think of a single reason why someone would something like this on the web in the year 2006, full of advice that’s either outdated, has been proven to be wrong in the meantime, or, even worse, has always been wrong, ignores the fact that there is a certain burden on the user to RTFM, and seems to be obsessed with techniques that nobody uses anyway at the time of publication.
    C’mon, there’s gotta be some better ressources to point to…
