Product Description

Amazon Review

There are nearly 750 million people with disabilities world-wide, and the Internet provides a realm in which most of them should be able to participate to the benefit of all. Systems developed for the use of the average citizen in the everyday world often abridge the rights of the disabled, excluding them by making access difficult, cumbersome, unrewarding or even impossible. But more and more design experts recognise that in the wired world there is an opportunity to correct this injustice, though careful and thoughtful planning is necessary.

Web Accessibility for People With Disabilities provokes ideas on how a Web site for which you have responsibility can and should be made accessible to the whole community rather than unfairly restrictive. This book introduces to all the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), launched to raise the awareness of accessibility issues on the Internet and to encourage corrections. Positively, laws and standards for accessibility are being formulated and invoked.

Tips, tools, specifications and language (scripting) enhancements to make your Web site accessible abound in this practical book, and the author supplies details of sites from all over the world that can give advice, evaluation, or sometimes just service as a good example. --Wilf Hey

Format: Paperback
Mike Paciello has produced a first class resource for novice and expert web site developers alike. The Disability Discrimination Act in the UK now requires services to be accessible to all people. Hence there is now not only a moral obligation to make the World Wide Web accessible to the disabled, but a legal requirement too. Mike Paciello's book skilfully guides the reader through a vast array of information and practical tips that covers all aspects of developing an accessible web site. The text is generously supplemented with links to all the key web sites that support and promote the accessibility message. The opportunity of building a web site according to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines serves the purpose of not only making your web site accessible to disabled people, but enhances the usability for everybody. With Paciello's book hot off the press why not put the web accessibility design principles into practice on your next web site project? You too can help in making the web accessible to all.

What Mike Paciello has done is tell those who work in the world of the Web what they need to do in order to make information accessible to all. A fantastic reference book that should be in every Web developer's hand whenever they build a site. This is one of the most helpful guides I have ever read and I urge everyone to purchase and read this book. A must-have.

This book has everything I needed and far more.
The first couple of chapters were to be honest a little boring for me, hit chapter 3 and you are well into the things to do, how to do them and what is expected of you as a developer.
As a developer of many years I understand accessability issues but had not realised the vast extent to which HTML can be customised to work better for people accessability needs.
The author makes you understand what to do and why with sample code and references that work and are clear.
Great book for students, web professionals or even home users that wish to improve their sites.
Well worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - product review now out of date 1 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The sections on how to make pages accessible appear to be exactly what we need. Just be aware that this book came out in 2000 and the products reviews are way out of date. For example, Dreamweaver Version 2 is discussed in the book and even in 2000 Version 3 was out. Now we have Version 4. Same with Frontpage, HomeSite, etc.
However, what we need is HOW to make the pages accessible and this book appears to cover that well. As long as you don't look at the product section as being the latest information, this book is a good one -- and I think the only one of its kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessibility - a "rights" thing to do. 1 Nov. 2000
By William B. Loughborough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This exhaustive study of the whys and hows of providing accessibility to the World Wide Web was written by pioneer and major participant in the important effort to make the Web usable by everybody.
Although focusing on issues dealing with access for People With Disabilities, the impact on usability of the Web by everyone is made clear.
The major section outlining the almost certain legal consequences of ignoring these matters is must reading for anyone involved in providing materials on the Web. Remember: PROGRAMMERS ARE CHEAPER THAN LAWYERS!
