A must for all web developers, designers, commissioners, and users

If ever there was a book that not only explained why accessibility is vital to web development, but also shared the tips and techniques to achieve it - this is it.

An easy to read common sense attitude, along with the legal facts, make this a must read for anyone in the industry today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding. Absolutely every web developer and website owner needs to own this., 16 July 2007

This review is from: Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance (Paperback)
This text book is of very high quality and an engaging read. Apart from the expected target audience of web developers, I will suggest that website owners and non-developers should consider getting hold of this vital textbook.

The fact that it leaves you wanting more is a compliment to its quality. Even though it is bulky, I wished it had covered certain areas in more detail.

One small criticism relates javascript examples, one or two of which refer to techniques that are questionable in terms of robustness and re-usability, issues that, to be fair, the author does point out. [Background; search for "addEvent considered harmful" in your favorite search engine.] Yet no definitive solution is given, and the reader is left hanging. But such small gripes should on no account not put you off buying this text.

Anyway the numerous authors are to be congratulated. Indeed, given the size of the field and the rapid pace of developments, a second "part II - advanced" volume would be a very good idea indeed.
