A sobering post from Ethan Marcotte. I somehow missed the WebAIM report he referenced, but fully agree with his conclusion that web accessibility is absolutely vital. I also agree that the best way to fight for it is by starting small, but (hopefully) ramping up quickly. Focus on your areas of interest, connect with a few people, and get the work started. If we get some momentum going, I think we’ll all be able to build a better, more accessible and inclusive web for the world.
My personal area of interest happens to be email, and accessibility and inclusion has been the focus of my last few talks (and a few upcoming ones, too). I’ll keep writing about it (new book perhaps?) and evangelizing the good stuff. I hope you’ll join in, too.
