Designing Web Pages That Are Usable and Accessible to All.
Wheaton, Joe E.; Granello, Paul F.
The Internet is a growing source of information for persons worldwide, but for many people with disabilities the Internet can be a confusing jumble of images, frames, scripts, and colors that make little sense. Although learning how to make Web pages accessible to all takes some effort, it is effort well spent for one very good reason: accessibility is for everyone. This document gives a brief overview of the two main laws related to accessibility (the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act). It then addresses the 14 guidelines developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). Finally it identifies free resources for Web page designers. (Contains 25 references and resources.) (Author)
